The Kindle Touch has gained weight and girth since getting the touchscreen treatment. But it has gained a lot more besides, too - MP3 playback, voice synthesis, and a much larger battery. It is a fantastic ereader, with ease of use benefits that'll outweigh the flexibility bonuses on offer from other manufacturers. However, we're not convinced touchscreen operation is better than good old buttons here, and the Kindle Touch doesn't eclipse the cheaper model.
