I know that it is a different device altogether, but is anyone using the ipad? How do you rate it??
I still use my Kobo eReader.... I had never had an eReader before and didn't want to spend a lot of money on something I knew so little about so I bought a Kobo because it was super cheap (about $80) from Borders. I have been using it ever since and while I plan on buying a newer touch/color eReader I have never had a problem with the Kobo. It allows you to use SD cards where you can add books onto the SD card from your computer and insert into the eReader, it has wifi and you can direct download from the Kobo site. While it's not the prettiest or fanciest thing in the world, it's cheap, easy to use and I've never had a problem with it. I also have an ipod touch that I use for my ebooks which allows me to connect to my computer via wifi and download books through Stanza or you can download apps (such as ibooks, Kobo, etc) add purchase books that way. I've never used a kindle, nook or sony ereader so i don't know how they compare.
@Fleur: I already have a sony reader so was wanting to go foor something with more features and options. Upgrading to a tablet makes sense so was looking at the ipad.However, considering its size nd weight was wondering if its suitable for prolonged reading.
You can do what I did, I went to the store and talked to one of the workers there in the electronics department and they let me play around with the store demo and get a feel for each one of them. That way you can get a feel for all the options tablet-wise.
How much does an iPad cost? And a Motorola Xoom (in the US)?
I bet if they sold Kindle here it'd be US$ 300+ Even cell phones r too expensive. iPhone & iPad cost like US$ 1500
Yes ive heard a lot of good things about the kindle but I already have the sony PRS600. So am more keen on a tablet.
