E-Reader Buying Guides

Things to consider:

  • e-Ink or LCD screen?
  • Color or black & white?
  • For Internet and apps or mostly reading text?
  • 3G or Wi-fi?
  • Touch screen or hardware buttons?
  • How important is battery life?
  • What size and weight is comfortable and convenient for you to carry?
Keep in mind that if you have a smartphone (iPhone, iPod Touch, Android) you already have access to many of the e-reading tools on this site.
