REVIEW – Dedicated eReaders are great because they allow you to carry a whole collection of books in one device. But most are too big to fit comfortably into a pocket – until now. Today I want to tell you about the Onyx BOOX Palma. Will it become the iPod for ebooks? Let’s check it
REVIEW – The BOOX Page 7” eReader is about the size of some other small e-readers but it packs more under the hood than you’d expect at a glance. The Boox Page is actually a small, gray-scale, tablet computer. It’s running on Android 11 and comes with Google Play Store pre-installed. The Page comes ready
NEWS – A few weeks ago I told you about the Onyx Boox Poke2 Color, an ereader device with a color display. I think that it’s a cool looking device, but it has a $300 price tag and it’s currently sold out. No worries though because now there’s another new color ereader on the market.
It’s been a while since I’ve thought about dedicated eBook readers, but the Boox Max2 Professional from Onyx is so much more than a dedicated eBook reader.

I just received an email from Sony about their decision to close their US and Canadian eReader Stores this Spring (March 20, 2014). That’s the bad news… The good news is that all the existing eReader accounts will be transferred over to Kobo. See email details after the jump.
Are you interested in switching to an eReader device so that you can carry more books with you, but without all the bulk?

Amazon today released a new firmware for their Kindle Paperwhite.

For the last two years I’ve been more than happy with my Kindle Keyboard (3) 3G and haven’t seen the need to upgrade to any of the newer Kindle versions. Smaller size or touch interface never seemed to be a driving factor to warrant spending the extra money on an “upgrade”. However as someone who
It started with the Amazon Kindle Fire, then came the Google Nexus 7, the Kobo ARC, and the Amazon Kinde Fire HD and HD 8.9. The next entrants in the low cost Android-based tablets battle has just been released by Barnes and Noble. The Nook HD is a 7″ tablet running at 1440 x 900
It’s funny isn’t it, there’s so much press about Amazon’s new Kindle releases, and yet there’s not a lot of news about Kobo’s new range of e-readers that were released earlier on in the week before the Kindles? Kobo has released the: Kobo mini with 5″ e-ink screen , WiFi-enabled reader for $79.99 Kobo Glo with a

Amazon introduced their first Kindle device back in 2007 when the dedicated eBook reader population was made up almost exclusively by Sony’s Reader line of products. The eReader population has grown to include more brands than I can count and in the last 5 years, we’ve seen the technology in this category evolve from e-Ink devices to
