Battle of the e-readers: who wins?

Who thought that reading could be this much fun? Yes, this activity is still timeless, but e-readers (tablet-like devices used for reading electronic versions of books and periodicals) are taking the personal technology world by storm. Many e-readers have been put up for sale, but four companies have emerged to dominate this field. Keep reading to find out who comes out on top!

1. Amazon’s Kindle

of

The e-reader craze began when online shopping giant Amazon.com released its first-generation e-reader, the Kindle, in late 2007. About as thin as a pencil, the lightweight and slim device utilizes a special “e-ink” to prevent glare, which makes it easy to read outside in the sun. Although it had to add Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity to keep up with the market, the Kindle separates itself from competitors with its super-long battery life: one to two months from just a single charge.

The Amazon Kindle starts at $139.
