In a press release by Amazon, the Kindle Touch 3G which the company describe as the most full-featured Kindle e-reader is now available for pre-order in many more locations around the world. The Kindle Touch 3G is the touchscreen version of Amazon’s popular eBook reader and features free 3G wireless connectivity for your downloading needs. Amazon reiterated that with the free wireless 3G service, there will be no annual contracts, monthly fees and that users will have to neither pay nor hunt for a WiFi hotspot. According to Amazon, the Kindle Touch 3G is now available for pre-order across 175 countries and shipping of the products will start on April 27.

In addition to all the excellent features already on the previous Kindles, Amazon has added two more. The first of the additions is a feature that Amazon has called X-Ray which lets users explore the “bones of a book” with a single tap. Readers will be able to see all the passages across a book that contain ideas, fictional characters and other things buoyed by information from detailed descriptions provided by Wikipedia and Shelfari (Amazon’s community –powered encyclopaedia for book lovers). Besides that, the new Kindle will also be fitted with built-in speakers that offer support for text-to-speech, audiobooks and mp3s. Customers will be able to discover, download and listen to audiobooks narrated by authors and celebrities.
