It is so small and light and the accu goes for 10 hrs, I could not see the need for a tablet yet. This will only be valid as long as I have not had a tablet to play with for a couple of hours AFAIKmyself

Sony PRS-350 / iPad 2

I love how small and light the PRS-350 is. It's the reader I use for novels, etc unless I'm reading in low-light conditions.

The iPad 2 is mostly used for reading comics and technical/reference books (usually PDF). I'm looking to replace it with a rooted Nook Color but so far, there's one app I need (Viz) and basically the only reason I bought the iPad that's not available on Android (or anywhere else for that matter). There are also some apps I really like on iOS (ComicGlass) that still haven't been ported to Android yet (although the developer does plan on porting it). While alternatives on Android exist (PerfectViewer is pretty good), I still prefer the iOS app.

Hey Pooh, what app. are you using on the ASUS? ... for reading I mean. And what pros and cons you see when moving from iPad to ASUS, as reading experience or reading tool.

Right now I'm using only the K4Android app for reading. I tried some other apps on the iPad, but found that I really only needed the Kindle app.
I've not noticed any striking differences in reading quality between the 2 screens. From what I can remember, I think the iPad had more "fine tuning" available to adjust screen brightness/contrast/tint, but I've not experienced any glare issues with the TF. I wear glasses and am extremely sensitive to glare/brightness issues, but am reading comfortably on the ASUS.

Sony 950 and iPad 1. I use the iPad for heavily illustrated ePubs or pdfs, or when I want to read at night with no light on. Everything else gets read on the Sony. I like being able to add what I just read to Shelfari or goodreads via the iPad when I'm done.

Thanks for reply.

Do you find the Kindle for Android better than the Kindle for iOs?

I'm straining my memory - but I think that the K4iPad had more features than the K4Android - but I may be misremembering the iPad reading app for iBooks. One of them had really upgraded their dictionary and online look-up support.

Anyone with an iPad able to clarify this for jocampo?

I think that you are correct and your answer was the reason why I asked. You said you moved to ASUS from iPad and you mainly use Kindle app. I enjoy and like iOs version better, so I do not fully understand the reason for your move

Ironically, I like the B&N Android version better than the iOs one.
