Ama­zon, $US109 ama­­dle ★★★★

HOW small is the newly re­vamped Ama­zon Kin­dle? It’s smaller than a tablet com­puter, smaller than a novel, and smaller even than a comic di­gest. In fact, it’s al­most small enough to use as a bookmark in­side a pa­per book.

Though it fea­tures the same name as the orig­i­nal Ama­zon e-book reader, this de­vice has shrunk sig­nif­i­cantly. Its body is just 8mm thin and, at 170g, it weighs only as much as a mo­bile phone.

In short, it’s an e-book reader you barely reg­is­ter hold­ing.
