Wanting to buy an e-reader/Tablet.
Hello.I am torn inbetween buying a tablet or an e-reader.It will mostly being used as a reader but i think its kinda cool to be able to watch some movie while travelliing thats why i think about buying a tablet...
My choices are from readers : Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo glo.About the 1st,well i heard about a lot of issues with the screen having blotches which is not very reassuring about its quality plus its not available on my country yet and i dont know a way to buy it and about the 2nd the only issue i heard is about support which is not that bad...The fact is i buy from amazon quite alot so i am not really sure which one is suited for me...
From tablets:Kindle fire hd or nexus 7......The 1st one is not available either but theres gotta be a way to get it sent over in my country.My reall issue is that i am not sure if reading books on tablet is gonna be comfortable for long periods....Anyone got expierence with either of those tablets?
Well waiting suggestions/expierences so i can narrow down my choices and buy 1 device..thanks

I hear that the paper white is a great reader, trouble is you can't get one yet amazon is not shipping them and there not in stores. The tablet will need wifi available to do Netflix so that's a tad limited. Considered the glo however if you do get that one you need to deal with kobo's pricing scheme, no discounts unless you snag a discount code that are sent out from time to time. Amazon's pricing scheme is the lowest price all the time. So take your pick.

A main consideration that I would suggest is battery life.
There is great comfort if you travel a lot, not to have to worry about charging your device every night. I have both a tablet and a Kindle touch. I read almost exclusively on the Kindle Touch, easier on the eyes for sure and stays charged for 1-2 months depending on if I use the light or not. Absolutely, love 'grab and go' rather than 'where's my charger?'.
