Kindle’s latest e-reader is out and it’s a damn fine product—the best e-reader ever made even. It’s also the most expensive e-reader currently available. So if the idea of spending $290 on a portable library makes you shudder than it’s time to consider the other guys.
You might be wondering why we aren’t we about the other e-readers. Kobo, Sony and Barnes and Noble all make solid products, but the high resolution displays found in the majority of Amazon’s e-readers are significantly better and easier on the eyes. Also Amazon has, hands down, the best library of any of the devices, and as most don’t (technically) allow use with other ebook libraries, you’re going to want to let that dictate your choice.
