To Kindle or not to Kindle?

By Aishah Macgill

Visiting a tech shop today, I noticed they were selling a lot of e-reading devices. They had many different types in stock except for a Kindle. The product they were pushing was the Sony Kobo. It looked really neat and the¬† e-ink was really¬† clear. Overall, it looked great. BUT you cannot read books from Amazon on the device. [Author Info]I have a Kindle, and I couldn’t imagine why someone would not want to have access to the vast library that exists on Amazon.[/Author Info]

If the Kobo was a product by some small indie producer, I would be more sympathetic, but it is owned by another giant, the Sony Corporation. Kindle still wins hands down for me.
