Now that I’m actually ready to own of these technological babies, the brain is starting to go into overload on the available options. There’s the iPhone, the Kindle, the Nook, the Sony Reader, and even more it seems. Options of wireless capability. 500K free digital downloads, touchscreens, color capability, size, weight, available books for purchase, ability to work with multiple platforms, and more = fizzled brain.
Being I have friends and co-horts who own a Blackberry, an iPhone, and a Kindle (vs. the option of ONE device to meet all of these needs), how does one overcome that challenge? Really, who wants to carry those 3 devices AND possibly a laptop onto an airplane, public tranpsortation,or possibly to one’s car (on a daily basis)? Honestly 1-2 devices should be enough. . . especially if the same person(s) are also toting an iPod too. At least I would be in that figurative bind.
After spending a good two hours trying to compare the various items, my ability to make a final decision still feels very fuzzy right now. If someone forced me to make a decision now, it would probably be the Nook….even though I REALLY like the Kindle.
If any of my tech savvy readers have a better argument for a different reader, please, please, please give a girl some help here. The goal? To only buy ONE e-book reader.
iPhone book reader – Stanza
