Q&A: Good, cheap, relatively thin PDA/eBook reader?

Question by darkcloud14: Good, cheap, relatively thin PDA/eBook reader?
I was looking for an eBook reader and I stumbled upon this site:

which shows a review for the Sony Clie T6152.
I looked on eBay and the Clie as well as a few other PDAs are relatively cheap because they’re a few years old.

Now, I don’t really care about the age, I just want something to read eBooks on rather than my cell phone. (Awkward small screen, backlight only stays on for 30 seconds, eats up batteries… etc.)
I just want something that works well.

Also, it would be nice if it wasn’t very thick, but that’s just a plus. I really don’t care much as long as it’s not gigantic and can preferably fit into my pocket.

Any ideas?
Oh, and looking through PDAs fo...

I am thinking about buying one because I have loads of PDF books on my computer but reading them makes my eyes sore and I dont like buying real books because of shelf space.

Q&A: Which good Ebook reader has a color display?

Question by Kartik C: Which good Ebook reader has a color display?
Which released or soon-to-be released Ebook reader has a touch screen AND a color display? Is there any device except the iPad which combines an Ebook reader with a portable video player?
Is Sony PRS 900 available in India?

Best answer:

Answer by AKA Inverse Mushroom Cloud
Ebook readers are grayscale because that is what makes the page/text easy on the eyes to read. When you add color LCDs, first of all you make it harder on the eyes because you have to backlight the displays, and second you add enormous power usage. This is why all the dedicated ebook readers are grayscale. Nook has a small LCD on the bottom of the front panel that is in color, for navigation and such.

Color LCDs are a long way from being good ebook readers...

What is the best ebook reader for the price?

Question by dragon: What is the best ebook reader for the price?
I am trying to buy an ebook reader as a present for my brother, however, there seem to be so many options (kindle, nook, etc). I am looking for a medium to large sized one, not one of those small 6 or 7 inch readers. Is one type better than the others? Or are they about equal but one type generally has a better price? Basically I want to know, what is the best ebook reader for the price it is offered at?

Best answer:

Answer by Annis
I’ve only used the Nook Color in a 7 inch version but this Christmas, now in fact, they are selling the Nook HD in a largerr size. supposed to be 9 inches and may be larger. Just check out the Barnes and noble in your area. I love mine.
