There are many e-readers on the market and these devices are often preferred by bookworms. Even though tablets and phones consisting of larger screens offer the possibility of reading on the go, readers might be disrupted by notifications from incoming emails and social network updates. The e-reader allows readers to focus on only one main activity: reading. The list below compares some of the hottest devices in the market.
Kindle Paperwhite (Wi-Fi)
Amazon has certainly perfected the art of coming up with affordable and convenient e-readers. The Kindle Paperwhite consists of a 6 inch touchscreen coming along with the sharp E Ink technology. The screen is very responsive making for a great swiping experience. Battery life lasts up to 2 months.
Kobo Aura H20
Kobo offers an array of about half a dozen of different devices. Kobo devices come with relatively more features and customizability compared to Amazon devices. The Aura H20 is a waterproof (it resists H20) and quite durable device. The screen is larger than the Paperwhite, about 6.8 inch. Kobo integrates with the Pocket software, enabling users to saves articles or pages to Pocket so that they are readable on Kobo.
Barnes & Noble Nook Glowlight
Barnes & Noble had started out in the e-readers market along with Amazon. Quite disappointingly, their lines of Nook products have not been refreshed and updated as often as the Kindle. The Nook Glowlight still remains a good affordable e-reader.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook
Even though tablets are not necessary convenient when you want to indulge in reading, this one might be convenient for reading emails or online contents. This tablet also has the features of regular ones.
