I know a lot of things might come in the future or can be fixed by rooting, but this shouldn't be taken into consideration in the present time. Sometimes I wait for future updates on devices that never come. Such is the curse of the early adopter.
out of the big three you mentioned I like Cnet the best, David Carnoy is an actual reader and he gives his reviews based on everything that includes the reading aspect.

Engadget and Gizmodo, especially Gizmodo tend to reviews these not as readers but as "Is this the next great tablet, what can it do? Can it run apps? can it wash my car? etc.
