|Bottom line|| |
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.
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
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.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
