Amazon to release the Kindle Touch in Europe on the 27th of April

Amazon has announced that it will be releasing the Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G in the UK next month

The Kindle Touch, said to have the most advanced, high contrast E-Ink screen by Amazon, will be hitting the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy on April 27th. The UK models of the popular e-reader will be the same as the ones previously released in the US, but with several software tweaks and bug fixes. The WiFi-only model and 3G model will be priced at £109 and £169 respectively. 3G connectivity on the 3G model will be powered by Vodafone in the UK and will not need a contract because the cost of using the network will be included in the selling price. Both models are available for pre-orders starting today.

The Kindle Touch has an easy-to-use touchscreen interface and a very sleek design. It is the first e-reader to come with something called as an 'X-Ray' feature. This feature lets you look up characters, historical figures, and interesting phrases in a book  as well as detailed descriptions from Wikipedia and Shelfari, Amazon’s community-powered encyclopedia.
