Summary: I have owned an iPad and an iPad 2, and although they were great devices, I found I only used them for reading books and comics. I decided to downsize from the expensive iPad 2 to a $139 Kobo Touch... I am extremely happy with this decision!!! It is so light compared to the iPad, and I haven't even charged it yet... apparently it has a 1 month battery life. I thought I would be annoyed by the page refresh but I don't even notice it anymore. The e-ink Pearl screen is so much easier on my eyes than the iPad. You can get a number of cool cases for the ereader, or you can just use it on its own as it is easy to grip and has a very small form factor that doesn't strain your arm at all... better than even a paper back novel. I have very small hands, but I can use this device one handed if needed. I had the Sony 650 ereader (xmas present) but ended up returning it because I found the page refresh to annoying. The Kobo only refreshes every 5 pages and it is not nearly as annoying as the Sony. I am so happy with my purchase... this is saying a lot as I am a gadget geek and very picky about what I like. Go buy it now!!!
