A summary of CNet's E-Reader Comparison

Atomictown, part of, provides a good summary of CNet's comparison of e-book readers.  This includes (with 5-star based ratings) the Cool-er e-book reader (3-stars); the Sony PRS-700BC (3 stars); the Amazon Kindle 2 (4 stars) and the Kindle DX (3.5 stars).

More to the point, they give the main reasons along with links to the actual reviews with much more detail.

  As usual, reviews don't take into consideration, though, the very high cost of unlimited wireless access (which is not for only the Amazon store as too many have thought), but that's been covered here quite a bit already.

Also, Gizmodo has a detailed review of the Cool-er eBook Reader.  Many photos and a clean, clear looking screen but, like other reviewers, they find it awkward to use, and they recommend the Kindle 2 and Sony PRS-505 over this reader.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
