Electronic Paper eBook Readers

Kindle DX

Portable reading devices like the Amazon Kindle, Sony Readers, PocketBook, and Kobo all use a unique technology called epaper, which aims to mimic the look of ink on printed paper.

Epaper is very energy efficient—a battery charge can last up to 2 months—and it is easily readable in bright light, unlike LCD tablets, computers, and phones. And since it isn't backlit, electronic paper is known to minimize eye strain, especially when reading for extended periods.

Color eReaders and Tablets

Nook Color

Ever since the iPad made reading on LCD screens popular, an explosion of Android tablets marketed as ereaders have hit the market.

Color ereaders and tablets are more suited for reading magazines, newspapers, children's books, comics, and web content than dedicated ebook readers with monochrome screens.

As technology continues to evolve, tablets and ebook readers may soon merge into one with color display technologies like Mirasol, Pixel Qi, and color E Ink.
