Unlike its brethren, the Touch has a recessed screen, which makes room for the infrared touch sensors and stops you from accidentally swiping the page. It's a little odd, but you soon get used to it.</p> <p>The Touch is sensitive and responsive, if not quite iOS-fast. Tapping most of the screen will turn a page, the left edge turns back and the top edge brings up the menu. You can also swipe to and fro as if flicking through a book, with only a miniscule pause as the page refreshes – though you might notice a little slowdown in complex menus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-1654702551001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="1654702551001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

Getting dictionary definitions and highlighting text is easier than ever – just use your finger – and you can even pinch to change font size. But it's not all touch: there are physical buttons for home and sleep, although sleep is too easily nudged.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As you'd expect from Amazon, the Kindle store is a joy to navigate – and the touch functions make it easier still to get around. Books are delivered in seconds over Wi-Fi and 3G, but unlike on its predecessors, you can't web browse over the 3G connection.</p> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Amazon Kindle Touch review – versus Amazon Kindle </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>At just 170g, the baby in the Kindle range is 50g lighter and appreciably smaller than its bigger brothers – and cheaper too at £90.
