Portable Ebook Readers
Now You can read ebook by Portable Ebook Reader. Ebook readers have escaped, to some degree, the continual shrinkage associated with electronic media. Most boast a reasonable screen size of five to nine inches.
Simply put each company uses different formats in to their reader. Your city library loans ebook in this format and almost all readers support it. Nook, Kindle, Sony, Google, Aluratek, Archos, Ectaco all provide readers that will serve their purpose for as little as ninety dollars.
Color readers offer features that leave black and white readers in the dark. Magazines and newspapers are available by the issue and children’s books never looked better. The Barnes and Nobles Nook ebook reader colors the modern literary world the way it is supposed to be. It also comes with wifi, a web browser, games, apps, Pandora radio, expandable storage and boasts over two million books for download.
You might be asking, why would audio be a ‘key consideration’ for your choice of the best eBook reader? Obviously, you will need audio capabilities in your eBook reader in order to take advantage of audio books.
And then there’s the matter of that slick ‘text-to-speech’ capability, where your eBook reader can just read the text in your eBook to you… once again, if you have audio output capabilities. Most eBook readers do not have this capability, but a few do, especially the popular Amazon Kindle. Some eBook readers have headphone jacks; some have speakers.
Memory / Storage Capacity
eBooks are essentially digital files, pretty much like any typical computer file. All eBook readers must have memory. There is internal memory, like a computer’s RAM. All eReaders have internal memory. Some, like the NOOK, the Sony Touch, the Kobo, iRex Readers, and the Cybook have memory expansion slots so they can support external memory. External memory devices include things like SD cards, MicroSD cards, SDHC cards, and memory sticks.
Consider memory as we do with computers. More memory is always better. And expandable memory is, to some extent, infinite memory. Your eBook reader is very likely to become your digital library. Note also that, if your newest choice for best eBook reader supports the same type of expandable memory as your previous choice for best eBook reader, then your library of eBooks and documents can be easily ported to your new eReader.
