An e-book reader, which can be also called an e-book device or e-reader, happens to be an electronic
device that is functioned initially for the reason of reading digital books and periodicals and uses e-ink
technology to display content to readers. The main advantages of these devices are portability, readability
of their screens in bright sunlight, and long battery life. Any Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) able to show
text on a screen is also able of being an e-book reader, and not have the positives that an electronic ink
display has.Why Should You Buy an eBook Reader?
From the African jungles in Michael Crichton’s Congo to the farmlands of China in Pearl S. Buck’s The
Good Earth to right at home with the magazine Martha Stewart Living, books expand horizons. We’ve all
heard since shows like Wishbone and Reading Rainbow that books have the power to take us anywhere.
One library, so many possibilities.
eBook readers take it one step further. One device holds about a library and gives you as many of your
favorite book titles at your fingertips as you could ever really want. Plus, they make it easy to take notes,
save clippings of quotations and highlight passages we want to be able to find again. eBook readers are
about readability. They are designed to make your reading experience more enjoyable and less of a
hassle. Nobody wants to take a stack of books with them on a business trip or long roadtrip. They’re
convenient, portable and good for the environment. In fact, the only real downside we can see to an
electronic book over a real paper book is that you’ll have a few more problems if you accidentally spill your
coffee on it or get splashed at the pool.

eReaders, May 02, 2010
An excellent eReader is one that has the both of the most essential functions relevant to reading. Both
actual user and professional ebook reader reviews would agree on this.- One, it should be able to give
you a good reading experience, which means the screen should be as readable as real paper and should
have battery life long enough to let you finish a novel.- Two, eReaders should be able to get you books
with ease. You should also have a good range of content to access.In the first case, eInk readers are the
same in terms of readability, as they all offer the same glare-less screen and power efficiency. Some of
the differences in readability will defined by, among others, screen size and speed of page refresh.In the
second case, current eReaders greatly differ as only a few eReaders have wireless capability, web
browser, and built-in bookstoreHow essential is wireless capability to eReaders?
1. Quick access to a bookstore for shopping and browsing
2. Quick access to reference, such as Wikepedia
3. Wireless book downloads
4. Get content to your device without connecting to a PC
The Big 3: A Listing of Wireless DifferencesThe Nook has recently released an update that greatly
improves its web browsing capability and Amazon has added social networking to the Kindle, it’s a great
time to review the wireless access and browser capabilities of eReaders.eReaders use either or both of
the two types of wireless access: The main advantage of 3G access is it enables you to connect to the
Internet almost anywhere. WiFi access, on the other hand, works only when you are in a place with a WiFi
network. Although WiFi limits you to local areas only, it works faster than 3G access for web browsing.
1. Amazon Kindle 2 (3G access)
You get “almost-anywhere” web-browsing and wireless downloads, whether you’re in
Mexico or in the US, at the back of a taxi or on your bed. Kindle 2 Kindle 3G + WiFi has two versions
available: a US version and an International version. If you bought a US version and you travel abroad,
you can activate your cellular wireless browsing at no added cost. However, you switch from Sprint in the
US to AT&T when abroad. Some countries also cannot deliver wireless downloads or web browsing.
Regardless of where you use the 3G access, you’ll never receive a bill for the service.The 3G access
brings you to the Amazon Store, Wikepedia, and text –based sites like the NY Times. 3G also
synchronizes your book reads with other devices like PC or Mac, and updates blogs you have subscribed
to.Recently, Amazon announced a new social networking capability will be available to Kindle users in
May. The new feature will allow you to share highlights via Facebook or Twitter, as well as see most
highlighted books. Book owners can see what other people like most about the book they are reading, as
well as see which books are the most highlighted ones.
2. Sony Daily Edition (3G access)
Like the Kindle, the Sony Daily Edition connects you to the Sony Store without added cost. You can also
download wirelessly from your device. The main difference is that you can’t use the wireless access when
3. Barnes & Noble Nook (3G + WiFi)
Nook has been given a web-browser upgrade. The new web browser allows you to access news, the
Yahoo Mail, and surf the web. You can also read a book for an hour each day free of charge when inside
a Barnes & Noble store. The browser works only over a WiFi network, although the Nook also has 3G
access which you can switch to when not in a WiFi hotspot. To “Goto” a webpage, you
have to use the bottom LCD panel.Even before the upgrade, the Nook already had certain advantages
over the Kindle such as the capability to share books with friends (LendMe) and accessing library books.
The Nook can also be used to shop, buy, and download books from Barnes & Noble.The Bottom
LineAmong the Big 3 eReaders, the Nook, in my opinion, offers the best uses for its wireless capability.
Nonetheless, all eReaders still have plenty of room to grow. Sony has a lot of catching up to do, or we will
soon be talking about Big 2 eReaders only.
