£52.00 on Asda Direct.
Mine arrived today, has a sticker stating RRP of £129.99 and priced (weirdly) at £99.00. It is also £99.99 + Delivery at Misco.

Yes, not as good as a kindle as it has an LCD screen but it is much cheaper.

The others aren't colour for a reason, this isn't even a ebook reader, it's just a **** tablet.


The Barnes and Noble Nook Color is oddly enough in color. It's also pretty well reviewed.

That said this thing looks a lot pants.

I'd imagine you'd get glare as this is a backlit LCD display. The Kindle, Sony readers and other true e-readers use greyscale, non-backlit e-ink displays that rely on external light sources to be visible. That said, the battery life on these devices is better as power is only consumed on page-turns rather than all the time for an LCD.

Wikipedia have a good comparison table, although it's geared up towards the US market:

Have a look at the 2nd table...

EDIT: Also, I think that Calibre (a free application) can be used to convert pdf's to epubs. This will give you the advantage that text will be converted on the fly to fit your screen, rather than having to view and scroll through each page at a time...will be ok for books but not sure about anything such as technical documents with diagrams etc in them.
