Which Kindle Should You Buy?

There are 6 types of kindles available today, which makes choosing one a difficult task -especially for those of us who are indecisive!

First off there is the basic Kindle. It doesn't have a fancy name, or many gadgets. Your books will most likely have ads on them as well. However it is the least expensive, selling for an average of $79. If you'd like to go ad free, it increases to $109. Unlike the rest of the Kindles, this kindle has only an onscreen keyboard, making typing a tedious process. However if you get it solely to read and you'd prefer a cheap one, this may be the Kindle for you.

Next is the Kindle Touch. It's similar to the above Kindle and still fairly cheap. The key difference is what the name implies -no more buttons, just a neat, responsive touch screen. These range from $99-$139. They also possess a unique feature called the X-ray, which allows you to read contextual information on the backgrounds of your books.

Following after is the Kindle Touch 3G. An upgrade from the original Kindle Touch, the Kindle Touch 3G allows you to download books without a Wi-Fi connection. International, without contracts and unlimited 3G. It's more expensive than the two below it, costing $149 with ads and $189 without them.
The Kindle Keyboard comes next, which is about the same as the first Kindle -with a built-in keyboard at the bottom. This is much easier to type on than the onscreen one, with small but adequately spaced buttons to press and type on. It's $99-$139, depending on the offers available. This is for those who intend to do a lot of writing as well as reading on their Kindle -otherwise you may find it useless. One of its least popular qualities is that it is considerably heavier than the other Kindles. If this doesn't bother you and you intend to write books on it, by all means, purchase it.

The Kindle Fire follows after, blowing the rest out of the water. The Kindle fire is basically a tablet. You can surf the web with it, check your email, play games, and of course read books on it. The screen is a bit thicker, with moderately good resolution. Its main downside is the shorter battery life. Whereas the other Kindles have been known to last weeks on a single charge, these kindles are not made with e-ink -they're much more complex, therefore draining the battery much more quickly. However most consider the Kindle Fire worth it, especially at its exceptional price of just $199 -just a little more than the rest with many times the abilities.

Now that you know all of the types, we can get into their popularity. Which is best? Many opt for the Kindle Touch, as it is lightweight and fairly inexpensive. Not only that, but touch screens are easy to navigate and the ads on it (should you opt for the $99 dollar w/ads) are unobtrusive, showing only when you aren't reading via screensaver.

The more recent and equally popular is the Kindle Fire. With its phenomenal pricing, speed and capabilities, you get as much bang for your buck as possible here. Having a hard time deciding? Do you already have a tablet? Do you want to keep it or replace it? Most importantly, what do you plan to do with your Kindle? If you're mainly going to use it to read, go for the Kindle touch or one of its counterparts. If you answered yes to any of the above, grab a Kindle Fire. It all depends on your needs and preferences -they're both awesome!
