eReaders with backlight

Hi, all.
Which eReaders coming with back light? (like eBookwise), I understand that e- ink better for eyes and better to read but sometimes i'm reading in the dusk and have no light.

None of the e-ink devices have a backlight. The Sony 700 had a front-light. If you really want backlight, you'll have to go to the LCD side of things. Not the reflective, but the transparent (or transflective) ones. But the transparent ones are generally not easily readable in bright light, unless you turn up the backlight to the max (which will drain the battery faster).

I personally use two readers, one e-ink for daylight reading, one LCD for nighttime reading.

You could also opt for a clip-on light or a case with a light built in, Turtle. Best wishes. Neil

Thank's, well which LCD eReaders coming with back light.
My eBookwise got a backlight but I broke the screen and now shopping for another reader
that's why i'm asking.
I decided to buy Sony 300 or 505 but find out Sony have no back light.

The iPad makes an excellent book reader. It (obviously) has a backlight.

Yep, the iPad is good and you can adjust the brightness.

It's also fair to say that the Ipad is larger than the average reader...
