E-reader or Tablet? How to Choose

E-readers and Tablets for the Holidays   

Thinking of buying a Nook or Kindle for someone on your holiday shopping list? With many new devices on the market, dropping prices and increasing availability of downloadable books, e-readers and tablets are expected to be popular gifts again this season.


Take some of the confusion out of your shopping experience by learning about available models. 


What kind of eReader should I buy?

What do you plan on using your e-reader for? If you want to just read books, choose a simpler device such as the Kindle ($69)or Kindle PaperWhite ($119), the Nook Simple Touch ($99) or Nook Simple Touch w/Glowlight ($119) or the Kobo Mini-Reader  ($79).  


If you plan on reading magazines and newspapers, browsing the Web, prefer multimedia (music, audiobooks, video), and can't live without the Internet, a tablet is for you. Choose from multi-function devices such as the Kindle Fire HD ($199), the Nook Tablet HD ($199), the Google Nexus ($199) or the iPad ($499).


Above costs are starting prices that can vary with options such as ads, connectivity (Wi-Fi vs. 3G) and other accessories such as power adapters, covers and warranties.
