Full review: Amazon Kindle 3

It's scary how good yet inexpensive Amazon's ereaders have become. The 3rd generation Kindle is smaller, lighter and better looking than its predecessors. It's lighter and thinner than the Nook and the WiFi version makes the once price-leading Kobo Reader seem overpriced. The Kindle 3 has the usual 6" E-Ink display, but it's the high contrast Pearl E-Ink display we first saw on the 9.7" Kindle DX Graphite not long ago, and it looks great.

The Kindle 3 is available in two colors, graphite and white and in two wireless versions: WiFi for $139 and WiFi + 3G for $189. The latest Kindle has an improved Webkit web browser that you can use over WiFi and 3G, the usual text-to-speech, much better PDF handling and an improved keyboard.

In this full review we include macro comparisons shots of the Kindle 3, Nook and iPad's screen as well as a video review.
