|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.
The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
With an excellent built-in light and Amazon's best-in-class e-book selection, the Kindle Paperwhite rises to the top of the e-reader pack.
