The Kindle is likely the easiest decision there, and a good one. Nook Simple Touch is still around, iirc. Haven't kept up with the other eink device manufacturers, but ultimately it comes down to a few similarly priced e-ink devices that differ very little in primary function. It's a portable display that simulates the visual quality of text on paper, so I wouldn't be too concerned with missing out on latest functions.
