“Which ereader device should I buy?”:
A good overview of e-readers based on whats most important: cheap books, public library, color, etc. I see nothing wrong with the "not recommended" section, but I'm a risk taker and I'm confident that the open source world will clean up the poor software problem.
"Not recommended, and why:
* Kobo (Borders) – It’s more expensive than the Kindle with fewer features. It’s the same price as the Nook but doesn’t have access to B&N’s larger ebook store or accessory line. There’s no 3G model.
* All Sony Reader models other than the $250 model listed above – They lack wireless connectivity and cost more than a Kindle or Nook.
* Anything else – When it comes to electronics that rely on software to function, you want a company big enough and dedicated enough to provide decent support. As Teleread notes, cheaper models look and function okay on the surface, “but you will find that their software is abysmal. Stick to a name brand.”"
