Amazon Kindle Voyage ( Free 3G)
The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.
Sony Reader Pocket Edition PRS-350PC ( pink)
If you can overlook the fact that it's missing wireless connectivity, the Sony PRS-350 is a very nice little e-reader that's anchored by an impressive and easy-to-use touch interface.
Barnes & Noble Nook ( 3G/Wi-Fi)
The Nook Wi-Fi doesn't quite measure up to the Kindle in terms of design and overall performance, but it's a worthy alternative if you're looking for a more open e-reader that supports the EPUB format.
Sony Reader Touch Edition PRS-600BC ( black)
While it's an improvement to the company's previous touch-screen model, Sony's Reader Touch Edition PRS-600 is saddled with a screen that's short on contrast and prone to glare--and it lacks the wireless convenience of Amazon's identically priced Kindle.
Kobo Aura H2O
Kobo's new e-book reader is designed for reading in the bath, by the pool or waiting grimly in the rain for your bus.
