Top E Readers

Which e-book reader should I choose? Here are the recommended models:

 

PocketBook Basic 3

PocketBook Basic 3The list starts with the basic models of individual producers. They are intended for people who do not want to spend too much, and at the same time want to see if the e-book reader is for them. PocketBook Basic 3 is a refreshed version of the basic reader. A more modern E-Ink Cart screen (instead of E-Ink Pearl) has been used with better parameters and a clearer, more detailed image. It is worth noting that the screen in the reader is not touchable or equipped with lighting. The amount of built-in memory is increased from 4 to 8 GB.

inkBOOK Classic 2

inkBook Classic 2A similar functionality is offered by the reader offered by the Polish company Arta Tech - inkBOOK Classic 2. Here, too, we have an E-Ink Carta screen with a diagonal of 6 inches and a resolution of 800x600 pixels and without backlight (it is available in more expensive models). A nice addition is the fact that the reader can be operated both by means of a touch screen and physical page change buttons. inkBOOK operates under the control of the Android system, and that means the possibility of installing additional applications, such as Legimi.

Kindle 8

Kindle Touch 8 [Czarny]It's a classic. The basic version of the Amazon reader is the eighth generation of the device. Its price is slightly higher than the above models, but it's Kindle, and besides, the difference is not so big. What do we get in return? A great device, much lighter and thinner than previous generations. The reader is operated entirely by means of a tactile interface identical to the more expensive models of the manufacturer. Kindle 8 works slightly smoother than the previously mentioned readers, and also has a more efficient battery, allowing for several weeks of work without charging. Classic.
