Currently The Telegraph offers an "e-paper" edition through their website. This is in full colour with all the pictures from the newspaper.

Unfortunately the description from this edition doesn't seem to have changed from when the Kindle edition was being offered to US Kindles. It says that pictures and charts are not included, yet the price is 50% higher than the "e-paper" edition.

I'm hoping that this is because Amazon have simply copied the details of their US offering onto the UK website and that The Telegraph have yet to update how they will deal with delivering their UK newspaper to UK readers using UK Kindles.

They will need to reduce the price to the same as the e-paper (or maybe include a slight premium to take account of the delivery over Whispernet) and increase the content to the same as the e-paper - i.e. to include pictures and charts (in colour for those that read on PC, iPad, etc.)

I was looking forward to getting my Telegraph delivered automatically every day to my new Kindle when it arrives. But I refuse to pay a 50% premium for a cut-down service.

Importantly, since the Kindle now includes a webkit web-browser, Amazon and The Telegraph need to provide a unique selling point to justify why I should pay for a subscription service rather than just use the web-browser and free 3G to browse their website.

UPDATE:

Since my original review, the price has been reduced to the same as the "e-paper" edition. In my view this increases the value-for money substantially and I have therefore awarded an additional star.

What would now be required to score higher? Well I really would like it if a human being actually bothered to read the Kindle edition before posting it for download.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weekend editions crash my Kindle 7 Jan 2012
By sja
Having received a new 6" Kindle for Christmas, I am currently trialling the Daily Telegraph subscription. The daily edition is excellent; it is delivered wirelessly to my Kindle at about 3 am(!), and now contains pictures and the Matt cartoon. It is easy to read and to navigate around, and has two major benefits when travelling: (a) it is small and (b) it is clean! Any errors in it are no worse than in Kindle versions of books - e.g. spaces before punctuation, question marks instead of symbols, etc. - and I am aware that this is a problem when a hard copy has been scanned for electronic use.

There is a serious issue with the weekend editions, though. They may appear in the contents list on the Kindle, but when I try to open them the Kindle crashes and I get a message to delete them from the Kindle and download them via USB, which is inconvenient - especially if I'm away. Moreover, having downloaded them, I can read some of the sections (although accessing them is very slow), but if I try to access the magazine or any sections that come after it in the contents list, the Kindle crashes. Last weekend my Kindle crashed 23 times before I gave up and deleted the papers. Today, I have had the same problem; I tried to access the main paper twice and my Kindle crashed twice, so I have already deleted it and will again be buying a hard copy. This is a major problem, and for this reason I am very unlikely to maintain my subscription beyond the trial period.

Update (December 2012):

There is not yet a Kindle Fire version of the Telegraph, which is a shame. I hope that will be coming soon and that they will then be able to include all pictures, graphs, tables, etc in colour as they are in the print editions. I'm still very happy reading this on my basic Kindle, but the Kindle Fire gives a whole new platform to take this product to the next level and the fact that they haven't yet done so means that I've taken a star off from my original review. I'll gladly reinstate it when the product catches up with the technology!

Original review (May 2012):

When I read some of the reviews I wasn't entirely sure whether to even try this, but I'm really glad I did! I find the Telegraph to be the most accessible and least contrived of the UK broadsheets but my problem has always been just that - it's a VERY broad sheet and cumbersome to read as a result. So for me this has been something of a revelation - it's organised into sections (and for the weekend editions you get a lot more sections just as with the print edition - but without the need for an additional recycling bin..). It's very easy to navigate and you actually get more pictures (albeit not in colour) than I'd expected. I've done a quick comparison between the print version and the kindle version and it looks to me that you get virtually all of the same content (minus the adverts which for me is a distinct bonus, the crosswords which I never do anyway and the business dashboard which you can get online if you really need it anyway). So, by way of summary - much cheaper than the print version, much more convenient and every bit as good in terms of content. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suits my lifestyle perfectly 21 April 2012
I spend most of the year travelling around Europe where the average price of the Telegraph is 4. By the time I've bought 3 I've already paid more than the monthly subscription for this on Kindle.

I used to subscribe to the Guardian (which I still love) as it was the only one that included photos on Kindle but now the Telegraph includes these too and all the weekend magazines. Perfect!

I can't decide whether it's a true substitute for the newspaper but what I do notice is that I actually read every single article whereas sometimes with the broadsheet I skim through them. For me it's a 5* experience. Some people believe that it would be better on, say, the iPad where it's full colour but backlit screens are not comfortable for reading for extended periods of time.

So, conclusion? Take out the 14-day trial to make up your own mind but, if you're like me, you won't cancel it at the end.

Easy to read.,and select items. Very convenient. I'm a Times reader & have got used to the tabloid size paper and this is just as good. I haven't made a decision yet.

Why is the limited kindle version of the paper more expensive than the tablet colour version which can be bought for £100 for a year. Ok, but overpriced.

I love this Kindle edition of the Telegraph. I prefer it to holding and flicking through the actual broadsheet version. Shame about the absence of crosswords though!
