My tablet doesn't cut it for reading. It doesn't cut it for anything actually. The only use of it is very rarely does it wake up from sleep to carry with me to kitchen or front room when looking something up in browser. The 10" screen is too small for watching movies, can't type on the keyboard with 10 fingers, the speakers are too bad, it is too heavy to carry around, can't see anything outside in sunlight, it is too slow. Well in short, it was nice when it was new, now it just turned into an oversized phone that cannot even make phone calls.
Tablets try to squeeze too much into too little room. Jack of all trades, master of none. That is why I chose a dedicated reader. For what it is meant to do it does a pretty good job. I can read, occasional look up a word in dictionary, is light and small enough to carry everywhere.
