Yep. A new car can take you to anywhere. Work, home, to visit family, etc. But a specialized device like an e-reader is meant to do one thing primarily. If it did more first of all it'd be a lot less portable and 2ndly the price would go up as well. I have a cell phone for making calls, not for reading, taking pics or playing games. It's primary function is as a phone. The same goes for e-readers I think. People buy them to read. If they want to do other things there are android tablets that are much better for that.
