Amazon Kindle 4
Advantages: Lower price, large library, lightweight
I purchased my first ereader about two years ago, a cut price imagin model from smiths, and to be fair it served me well, with two problems, it had a colour backlit screen which hurt the eyes after a half hour of reading, and it was very difficult to find books. So when my girlfriend started making noises about wanting an ereader for herself there was only one place i was going to point her. The Kindle library is by far the most well stocked online library (Think appstore compared to android market or bb apps) and the ability to download books straight from the kindle eliminates the need for a PC... brilliant. The e-ink screen, whilst not visible in the dark (Although I don't recall a book ever being so), does not strain the eyes at all and the font size can easily be be changed. But for me the best thing about this new kindle is the price. the kindle 3 was a hefty £111, quite a lot for a poor student like me, but this model is around £30 cheaper, making it the cheapest on the market for a similar device. The old feature of surfing the web is still there, although it is quite slow, but then you buy this to read books not surf the web. This device is also quicker than the previous kindle with page turning almost instantaneous. The best aspect of the kindle for me however is the amount of free out of copyright books you can buy. You will quickly make you money back just reading some Bronte, Dickens and Shakespeare instead of buying the books. All in all, I cant see a reason why if you can afford this you don't get it.
Summary: Get this now! it will change your reading habits for the better!
