    You haven’t mentioned Kindle Keyboard or Kindle Dx. Any particular reason for that?

    In the CONS, you need to mention the history of the Kindle’s screen being easily damaged. It is very fragile (and while Amazon used to replace, they’ve drawn back some on that) – check the Amazon Kindle forums.

    Screen can easily be damaged while carrying in a padded backpack, no different than a laptop.

    I wonder why you didn’t mention the Kobo Touch eReader? It is certainly as cost effective as both the Kindle and Nook. It also doesn’t require a monthly subscription or that you only buy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble exclusively. You also have the ability to borrow books for your local library.

    What ???? Epub support for kindle Touch ?? BIG mistake !!

    Bizarre, you said you have to pay for the Kindle 3G connection – that’s incorrect. The 3G comes with free 3G connectivity for life.

    “If you don’t always have access to a Wi-Fi signal, but don’t want to let
    that stop you from accessing the store, then 3G is for you. However,
    you’ll pay for the convenience since you’ll be on the hook for a monthly
    data access plan.”

    I found the readability of the Kindle just awful, eye-straining and unusable. Returning it immediately.

      Also, IMHO— developers moved-in to complete with tablets too fast and no one is making an inexpensive one function, hi-contrast e-reader. Disappointing.
