Like a cell phone, it’s just a matter of time that most of us will own an eBook reader. Already the consumer market is flooded with various models, varying from price to features. Lucky for us, folks at Gizmodo have done a great job identifying the pros and cons of major eBook readers that are available today. Some of the devices (like Amazon’s Kindle) even let you subscribe to magazines and newspapers.
I can definitely see the advantage of such a device. For starters you don’t have to carry bunch of books and magazines when you are at the beach or traveling for work. Also, most of the books are much cheaper than their paper version; and don’t forget by reading books in electronic format you are saving our precious trees and the environment but you are killing the book publishers.
I am tempted to buy one, but I think I will wait a bit for these devices to mature.
