  • 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.


  • The $69 base version of the Amazon Kindle is even better than before, thanks to a price drop and a slightly improved display.


  • The Kindle 4's small flaws prove to be less important than the much more obvious reduction in size. Amazon's offering was always cheaper than its nearest rival, Sony's Reader, but bigger. Now it's effectively the same size.

    Ignore red herrings such as storage capacity and storage expansion - the Kindle 3 has sufficient space and the Cloud behind it for the rest - and you're really just left with brand and format personal preference, and pricing.


  • The new touch-screen Nook is a major advancement over its predecessor and offers some real advantages over the 2010 Kindle.


  • An E Ink reader you can use in the dark? Yep. Barnes & Noble delivers the first ebook reader with edge lighting that really works. And it's a winner.


  • Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight is a darn fine e-book reader. But for the fact that the Kobo Glo delivers the same features for £10 less, I'd recommend the Nook unequivocally. The B&N offering is certainly better - and better value - than the Kindle Touch, but that's of little concern to anyone already tied into the Amazon ecosystem.

    Like the Ectaco Jetbook and the Jetbook Lite , the Ectaco Jetbook Mini is designed to be a book-lover's pocketable reading companion. If there's any truth to the clich that great things come in small packages, the Ectaco Jetbook Mini might be it. The device may just be the size of your palm, but it is packed with features that make reading more pleasurable. Fans of Ectaco eReaders will also love the distinctive look and $99 price, the lightest on the market.
