|Bottom line|| |
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 Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
The $69 Amazon Kindle is an excellent no-frills e-book reader for anyone who’s willing to forgo a built-in light or a touch screen.
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.
The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.
