Top 3 E-readers
GRANNYNET GOLD: Apple iPad 2
Long battery life, fast, slim, printing available
Pricey but good value for what you get
The iPad 2 is a great piece of technology with a new slimmer and lighter finish. It has everything that most people on the go would want. The 9.7 inch screen is ideal for reading whilst travelling or you could listen to music, send SMS, take photos or just surf the web. This can be done in either portrait or landscape . The new back and front camera enables you to take photos or even talk face to face, great for keeping in touch with your grandchildren, or better still if you are with your grandchildren they can play games on it. There is a very cool looking cover for the iPad 2 which is very clever. It attaches magnetically and when the screen is covered the iPad goes to sleep and yes, when it is uncovered it wakes up. The cover can also double-up as a stand for either
The Kindle Keyboard 3G + Wi Fi
Slim & light, fast to download books
Yet another great Kindle from Amazon. If somebody bought me one of these for Christmas I would definitely welcome it. It is slimmer and lighter than previous models and fits into the smallest bag or even your pocket. It holds up to 3,500 books and can download a book in 60 seconds. Perfect for commuting with being so compact or even better for holidays as it takes up so little space. Gone are the days when we used to take a bundle of paperbacks with us for those lazy days on the beach, now you just need your Kindle.
Sony PRS 650 Touch Edition
Variety of print sizes
Just not as slick as the ipad
This is the third E Reader that Sony have produced and they have now ironed out many of the initial teething problems. You can just open up a book and read away. It has a variety of print sizes from extra small to extra extra large, six sizes in all and a really helpful zoom lens. The case itself is very easy to handle with a non-slip surface and weighs in at 7.5oz perfect to slide into the smallest bag. The battery life is stated at two weeks or 10,000 pages, just right for holidays and definitely easier than packing those paperbacks down the side of your suitcase.
