Still don't really see the point
I keep going round in circles on this one, I start out looking at ebook readers because I haven't enough space to store all the books I want. Hmm, a kobo touch at £99, or a kindle, at £149 would be good, but for a few quid more I can get a tablet, I could then use an ebook reader, but I'd also be able to watch youtube videos and look at colour content on the interwebs, but I have a netbook already, and that has a keyboard, what am I getting with a tablet?
Then I twig I don't need any of it, and I wonder why I wanted it in the first place.
Then I realise I'm being upsold and it's all marketing hype. THANKS el REG and to think I trusted you!
So I've placed an order for the basic kindle wifi at £89 after a lot of uming and ahing about other ebook readers, I'm going to give it to my wife.
Meanwhile I'll keep reading books until something comes along that does everything I want and has some advantages over existing technology.
Colour e-ink, decent refresh rates & decent battery life.
