If you’re thinking about an eReader for a Christmas gift you should probably read this:
I’ve been more or less happy with the Sony eReader. It works ‘good enough’ but if something better comes along I’ll drop it in a heartbeat. I’ve not been happy with either their Mac or Windows software that lets you purchase from their book store and sync to your device. ‘Abomination’ comes to mind….
Of course, IF Apple ever does a tablet device of some sort, all bets are off. Plus, the iPhone, despite its size, is really a very good eBook reader and it’s always with you rather than one more device to carry with you.
