Find out what Practical Motorhome thinks of the Amazon Kindle 3 in our expert review


While the iPad is good for reading ebooks, the Kindle 3 is amazing. Its 6” black and white ‘e-ink’ screen looks just like a printed page, and is very easy on the eye for long reading sessions — though, like paper, you’ll need a light to read in the dark. The Kindle 3 is thin and light, too, which means you can carry it anywhere with ease.While you can read free ebook classics, new titles are bought from the Amazon Kindle Store using the Kindle 3 itself — it has built-in Wi-Fi and optional free-to-use 3G, which means you can think of a book and be reading it within seconds. The flipside to the ‘e-ink’ screen is that the Kindle isn’t that user-friendly when browsing the web and viewing images, despite a web browser being included with the Kindle 3.
