Amazon Kindle eReader Review
An impressive e-reader in its own right, at a price that undercuts the rest of the market.
Music & Audio Controls
To be frank, the controls for the MP3 playback are just plain bad. They work fine enough, but due to limitations with the screen's inability to animate, the controls are not only limited, but slow as well. There's a reason this feature is under the "experimental" section, along with the bad browser.
Music & Audio Management
Music files are stored in their own separate folder on the hard drive, managed by the MP3 player function in the experimental menu. You can't view what files you have on your kindle, nor can you browse in any other way but the "next track" button. We look at the MP3 playback function more as a sidenote, and not something that is a main feature or draw for the Amazon Kindle Touch.

Music & Audio Battery Life
After subjecting the Amazon Kindle Touch to our battery testing, we've found that the Amazon Kindle Touch can handle audio playback for over 24 consecutive hours without needing a recharge. This isn't terribly surprising, as every tablet we've ever reviewed has given us the same result.
