For the Kindle's 10th anniversary, Amazon updates its high-end e-reader so you can take it in the bath. It has a bigger 7-inch screen and support for Audible, too.
Sony's second-generation DPT-RP1 features a crisper display, slightly slimmer design and a more responsive touchscreen.
Kobo has updated its 6.8-inch waterproof e-reader with an improved design, more memory and an improved integrated lighting scheme.
The new Nook GlowLight Plus probably isn't going to make any converts out of Amazon's Kindle customers, but at least Barnes & Noble now has an e-reader with competitive specs and performance to the Paperwhite.
Though its store still has room to grow, the Kobo e-reader offers a smooth, simple and user-friendly experience at a competitive price point.
The Kindle Voyage is Amazon's best e-reader to date, and probably the best e-reader ever -- but it doesn't come cheap.
For those who can live without an integrated light, the Kindle (2014) offers the full Kindle e-ink e-reading experience with little compromise for a budget price.
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.
While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
With its more portable design, the Kobo Aura is a worthwhile -- albeit pricier -- Kindle Paperwhite alternative for EPUB fans who don't want to be tied to Amazon's proprietary ecosystem.
While the "all-new" Paperwhite may seem like an unspectacular upgrade on the surface, it's a clear improvement over the original Paperwhite and arguably the best e-reader currently available.
The affordable Kobo Mini is a likable touch-screen e-ink e-reader that's too small for some and not quite small enough for others.
The Kobo Glo is an excellent Kindle alternative, especially for readers seeking EPUB compatibility and international options.
The $69 Amazon Kindle is an excellent no-frills e-book reader for anyone who’s willing to forgo a built-in light or a touch screen.
The Sony PRS-T2 is a perfectly good touch-screen e-reader whose only sin is that it doesn't have any competitive advantages over Amazon's and Barnes & Noble's e-readers.
With an excellent built-in light and Amazon's best-in-class e-book selection, the Kindle Paperwhite rises to the top of the e-reader pack.
The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight sets the standard for e-ink e-readers going forward and is well worth the extra money if you do a lot of nighttime reading.
While it's relatively affordable, the Kobo Vox is a truly unexceptional Android tablet, with nothing to recommend it over the identically priced Kindle Fire.
