Do you own an eReader or Tablet? I'd like you hear some of your pros and cons of using these handheld devices for ebooks in liew of college paperback textbooks.

New to the forum so i think best place to start as I love technology. As per my self tablets are the best as they got good resolution, large number of apps or in short tablets are multipurpose. But e readers are just for books only, but battery is good enough then the tablets. One of the biggest drawback of such devices is the screen as they are not good to read in the sunlight

Hi Nibraskian:

Yes, there are some differences between tablets and eReaders. Even though tablets provide the user with more capability, they are harder on the eyes and have a low battery life. I guess some eReaders can last up to a month of use before having to recharge the battery, and you can also use some in the sunlight with no problem. I think Kindle makes one like that.

Thanks for your feedback and welcome to our forum. Like you, I do love technology and am looking forward to future inventions!
