My Kindle Fire HD. I just ordered my first magazine, and I was very impressed. I love it you can switch back and forth between page view and regular view. There are some knitting magazines I want to keep in paper form, but I think all the rest will be electronic, now.

If available I'll experiment with the trial. No question, E Ink would be preferred. Alas, the Kindle version is not included in the digital subscription of my newspaper (NY Times), in other words, I would have to cancel my existing subscription before switching over to the Kindle.

Actually, due to the fact that the file is pre-loaded, it is a much smoother and faster 'flipping through pages' than if you use the WSJ or FT apps on tablets - which are usually downloading in the background while you try to read and constantly hiccup.
Fortunately the NYT Android App downloads updated content in one batch (optionally including image thumbnails).

No need to cancel before taking the free trial...

I use my Nook for subscriptions. I had a couple of expensive subscriptions on my Kindle. After nearly a year, my Kindle broke. I was assured that everything would transfer to the Kindle. Guess what - magazine subscriptions DO NOT. They are assigned to the specific kindle. So, I lost out -many of these mags (Ellery Queen, Asimov), I didn't even get to read because my late Dad was so ill during that year. Amazon replaced the Kindle under warranty, but I didn't find out about DRM removal until some time later and don't have the serial number for the original one (I bought it at Target).

I just discovered Pulse a couple weeks ago. Couldn't believe such a great app was available for my Nook. I like my Nook a lot more now!

Zinio on my iPad3. I guess I could also install Zinio on my Nexus 7, but don't see much of a point to doing so, since for magazines, I prefer the larger screen real estate.

It's fantastic! It gives me all the magazine content I want for free. As a result, I don't have to spend money on magazine subscriptions.

IMO, Pulse is much better than Flipboard and Currents.

Fortunately the NYT Android App ...
If you would be happy with Calibre's NY Times, then there's no need to buy a Kindle subscription. Your smartphone digital subscription will allow Calibre to assemble a NY Times newspaper each day.

When I had both a Kindle subscription and a digital subscription about a year ago, I compared Calibre's edition with Kindle's on a K3. They were almost identical, and the only differences I saw could be attributed to the time of assembly.

Downsides to Calibre's version vs. Kindle's:
- no 3G delivery (alternatively you could set up a server and fetch via 3G)
- your PC must run Calibre each day and be attached to the internet (you could leave it all running when away on vacation).
- your Kindle must attach to wi-fi to get the newspaper delivered.

Neutral:
- time of assembly affects content. So you could tweak Calibre's assembly to occur closer to when you read.

Advantages: free!

Sometimes, when I have a liot of down time, I still do. But I usually check out my go-to sites instead of waiting for an app to update the feeds.

I use my Nook ST to read Ellergy Queen or Asimov's science fiction. Since there aren't any pictures, it works perfect.

I use my computer to read the quilting or cross stitch magazines - craft magazines just don't work on small, non-color devices. The print is just too tiny. I think even someone with an Ipad would struggle with the craft magazines. You need a laptop or larger.
