Engadget ponders on e-reader choices

Our friends at Engadget ask: "What would be the best PDA or other gadget to buy to read e-books on the go? Is there anything that could be used to read them in PDF format?"

Of course we have plenty of tips we could share with them, don't we?

Someone could put up a link for us!!!

Engadget has no choice. They have to talk of reading devices since the Sony reader scored so highly in their 'Favorite Gadget' poll.
It's the typical result of any maketing study. Reading rates highly amongst the general population and warrants further commitments towards the E-book.
Yay!!!

There are a couple of links there now. "Andrew" put up a link to the Wiki matrix, and I put in a link to the e-book devices forum.

Unfortunately, there are some 4 pages of comments, so whether anyone will see it or not is open to debate.

Even given the emphasis on dedicated devices, it's good to see quite a few people still reading e-books on their PDAs and cellphones (I'm still using my Toshiba e330 myself), and a mention of PSP. The best news to spread about e-books is that you have choices, whatever best suits you.

I think the question of how to read pdfs on eink has one simple answer. :-P

Too bad it doesn't get answered until the 3rd page of comments. :-(

I find my Palm T/X a great method for proof reading a scanned book. I can highlight a typo & bookmark the page. This way I can easily find the error to correct my master .rtf file.
