I have decided to get one, because my text books are getting rather heavy and I don't like trashing my books, and a lot of the times I want to read PDF documents (take PRISM 4 as an example).
I have had a look at a Kindle, and like the fact that you can view text from all angles, but it is not in color (most books are not so why am I complaining?) and that it is light and very power efficient. I don't like the Amazon branding at all, or the fact that you control it with buttons and not a touch screen. It is very lightweight, but seems overpriced for what it is.
There is the new Nook that looks very good but is the underlying OS any good. I also know that theye are due to be a few new Android tables out so is it worth waiting for one of them or is the iPad the pick of the bunch even though it is expensive?
