iPad is a great device but not for reading... My wife has iPad 3 but I can't read more than 20 minutes from iPad screen. I don't have any problems reading on my jetBook Color.

I've just finished reading Life of Pi on my iPad. It's fine, but I still prefer my ereaders.

Funny, and exactly why I can not read on my tablets. I was on vacation without a kindle once and it drove me nuts having to read on my iPad.
The constant - and usually self-imposed - distractions, plus uncomfortable weight and LCD screen were just too much.

gute Kommentare:



" Erst mal kannst Du auf einem iPad drausse nicht lesen. Und auch drinnen tränen dir spätestens nach zwei Stunden die Augen. Das kann man mit elektronischer Tinte gar nicht vergleichen.

Ich hab das Ding und kann es nur empfehlen. Die Firmware wird mit jedem Update besser so dass ich mir da keine Sorgen mache.

Für E-Book Fans mit Niveau zu empfehlen. Stupide Zocker können gern eweiterhin z um iPad greifen. ''

This is so true

I have an iPad which I tried reading a book on but just couldn't. Other than the fact that the backlighting was very uncomfortable to my eyes, it was very distracting. It was difficult for me to concentrate on the book I was reading, knowing that YouTube and my apps are only a tap away made it impossible for me to finish a chapter! That was one of the reasons why I decided to get myself a Kindle and I'm really happy that I did and I'm glad that the browser on the Kindle Paperwhite is very basic and unsatisfactory.
Yes.. I always want check email etc. on kindle I don't have that temptation.

I've been reading on a tablet for a couple of years now, and really don't see the problems.

I like the flexibility of multiple apps, and a dedicated monochrome reader is just useless in comparison for those of us who want to read comic books.

I'd love a dedicated reader for fiction, but for one device to read everything - a tablet is better for me.

I never knew that dedicated ereaders could induce hallucinations. Maybe tablets are a better idea after all ...
