The handheld ebook reader market really began to take off in 2010 when
Amazon and Barnes and Noble began a price war on their products, the
Kindle and the Nook, respectively. With the price dropping,
and even more
competition offering so many great options, the ebook reader has become
so affordable, practical, and feature rich. Many now even
look and feel much like tablet computers. In fact, Samsung
provides many of the current Nook models.
For those wondering how a handheld ebook reader fits into the spirit of
this website, which focuses on prepaid wireless, you'll be happy to
know that I have an answer! Most of these devices
have wireless capability, and
whether you're looking for WiFi or 3G/4G broadband connectivity, you'll
want to find free or prepaid plans. Fortunately, because the
cost of these devices is relatively low, they're largely being offered
on prepaid, no contract wireless plans. So there's the
connection. In other words, please don't sign a contract to
get wireless data on your ebook reader!
Of course you can write about anything that's on your mind in your
ebook reader reviews, but here
are some things that people commonly ask about, so please feel free to
use these topics to help you in writing your ebook reader reviews:
- How did you decide to buy the device that you did vs. using
a smartphone, phablet, or tablet?
- Is form factor important to you? (ex. size,
shape, color, battery life, operating system (ex. Android)
- How much do you think is reasonable to spend on such a
device, particularly given that you probably have other capable devices
- Is mobile wireless connectivity important or useful to you
(i.e. 3G/4B broadband, versus just using WiFi when available?
- Some people mock that a lot of ebook readers still don't
screens. Serious readers, however, seem to prefer eInk (black
text on a white background); what are your thoughts or experience with
- Do you have trouble reading it in the dark or low light?
What about outdoors in the bright sun? Do you use a
built-in or after market light to read with eInk devices?
- How important are other features like accessing the
Internet on your ebooks reader, note taking, built-in dictionary, etc.?
- If you are using 3G/4G, or would like to, how important is
the wireless carrier to you? i.e. Would you buy (or not buy)
a device based on the carrier that's powering the broadband connection,
or are you more
concerned about the general features of the device itself?
