Reading on-line news articles is not the same as "browsing the web."

If you do the browsing at, say, longform.org, I can't imagine how the experience could be better on a tablet than on an eInk reader. Ditto for dozens or hundreds of news sites that can be gotten via Calibre.

As for the "read online news articles clearly" requirement, if you want to read text-based web sites browsed in advance, I also find eInk also just fine -- with the caveat of having the font sizes controlled by going through www.readingthenet.com.

Examples:

Japan Broadcasting Corporation:
http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=....jp%2Fdaily%2F
tinyurl.com/d9lwp85

Swaminomics:
http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...waminomics.org
tinyurl.com/cbejsu7

The Times of India:
http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...mesofindia.com
tinyurl.com/7gmf6ae

Washington Post:
http://www.readingthenet.com/mob?ct=...p=30&u=twp.com

Also, if Rowan47 is in the US, I recommend the Kindle Keyboard 3G with the New York Times Latest News Blog for $1.99 a month. Unfortunately, it won't fit into the average pocket. I do fit it into a winter coat pocket.


EDITED: I just noticed that for some or all of my links, you now have to use the tinyurl address. I'll keep the full address there so people know what is behind the tinyurl addresses.

EDITED AGAIN: The above edit does give a feel for a disadvantage of accessing the internet via an eInk Kindle. The URL's you need to use tend to change over time.
