The Kindle Touch will be out in the UK from 27 April, and is available to pre-order on Amazon from today. At a cost of £109 (with free delivery), the Wi-Fi Kindle Touch has a multi-touch E Ink display – making it a step-up from the button-clicking vanilla Kindle.

The Kindle Touch has a two-month battery life and text to speech functionality. It has 4GB of internal storage and comes with free cloud storage for all Amazon content.

The Kindle Touch 3G is on sale too: for £169.
