My oldest wants an eReader for her 14th birthday. I've done a little research and found this one:
Which I sent to my mother to review since she has one. She sent me this one back because she has it:
and here's what she said "Kindle is good unless it says 3g wireless, all ereaders need a wireless connection like you have at home and the cafe. The kindle 3g is $169. I noticed it doesn’t come with a case, which my does. It makes it safer, and easier to carry. Really good battery life! Mine lasts about 5 hours but it’s fine for me. Mine is graphite color and has a memory card slot. I didn’t notice if the kindle does. As far as books, the free ones are classics. Check out the amazon prices. Mine uses kobo bookstore and prices vary."
I noticed that on that eBay listing it's so cheap which may be good since it's going to a 14 year old that can be somewhat careless with electronics. I did a quick review and found the major downfalls are that compared to the more expensive eReaders the Literati is not as good in areas like screen resolution and crispness--to me that's to be expected for the price. Other than that and what my mother told me I don't know a darn thing about eReaders.
Any advice or insight would be appreciated! It would be great if I could get her an eReader for $70 but only if it's worth not getting the better one for more money, you know?
