|Bottom line|| |
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.
With its more portable design, the Kobo Aura is a worthwhile -- albeit pricier -- Kindle Paperwhite alternative for EPUB fans who don't want to be tied to Amazon's proprietary ecosystem.
Though the Kobo eReader Touch Edition doesn't quite measure up to the Nook Touch or the Kindle, it's a respectable and affordable touch-screen e-reader with a lot of pluses.
