This is a discussion thread for the "The Tablet Shot the E-Reader" story posted on the front page.
Not too surprising, but I"m shocked that Pixel Qi screens arent catching on for this very reason. For those unaware, they're basically hybrid LCD/E-Ink displays that can be switched back and forth with the press of a button. If they started showing up in more mainstream tablets (currently, they're only in the failed Notion Ink Adam and a small handful of Chinese craplets), I'd say the ereader would completely die off.
i still use my kindle touch all the time even though its outdated compared to the paperwhite and is pretty beat up. (mainly just a bunch of scratches around the screen and on the back) the main reason i use it a lot is the insane battery life.
i used to have a kobo 2. i am still glad that my mom gave me 50 bucks for extra insurance for it since my idiot brother basically broke it in half. the refrubs didnt work that well though so i got 3 different ones. when i got my kindle i gave my kobo to my mom.
Nice articles lately. Is there a new writer?
I have the kindle touch too, just got it this year. It is not outdated for me yet.
The byline says "Jonathan Kizer." Not sure who that guy is, but it looks like he's been writing since April of 2010.
I see what you did there...
Oh is that you?
Apple’s iPad was "selling like gang busters"? Hah
