A college student would get a laptop and they would not need the e-reader.
Hi all it's my first post so hi!
I'm 16 years old and a college student and recently I had an issues with my Kindle so it is getting replaced free of charge. I only have the 4th gen one and having no backlight really annoys me... I'm definitely selling it when it arrives but I don't know if I should go and buy a Kobo Glo/Kindle Paperwhite or a tablet, all will be the same price but I don't know what to go for.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 which I use for emailing and well, most things and I can only see a tablet as a bigger version of it, it will be a nicer viewing experience but I can only see myself not getting that much use out of it because it will be easier just to crack out my phone. The tablet will do what my phone is just it's bigger which has it's advantages and disadvantages.
