  • The restrictive DRM and lack of support for the EPUB file format is disappointing, but we can't deny the Kindle 3G is an excellent ebook reader that makes finding, downloading and reading books a pleasure.


  • Excellent value for money combined with a simple connection to get your content, the Kindle experience is difficult to beat. However, you are locked to Amazon content, so won't get the option of shopping around for content.

    The Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G includes a full QWERTY keyboard, free 3G capabilities, text-to-audio and audiobook support. However, it's pricey and lacks a touchscreen.


  • Barnes & Noble's Nook Color is a capable color touch-screen e-book reader that offers much of the functionality of an Android tablet for half the price of an iPad.

    The Barnes & Noble Nook Color lands halfway between an e-book reader and a tablet computer -- and experts say it's a good compromise. Its main claim to fame is its 7-inch, backlit color touch screen, which testers say displays text a little more crisply and readably than the 9.7-inch Apple iPad 2 (*Est. $400 and up) , though the latest Apple tablet computer -- the new iPad (*Est. $500 and up) -- is equipped with a high-resolution Retina display that is flooring reviewers with its ability to render text.
