Which e-reader do you have?
What's it for you? Nook, Kindle, iPad, or else?
|Right now, it seems the market for electronic readers is just coming into its own. Several companies have launched their own electronic reading device and most are set up so that they are only compatible with books and apps from a certain merchant. |
I don't think the electronic reader market is a battle to the death as VHS versus Beta was, but there are those platforms that are more common than others.
The credit for starting the technology off and making it accessible to a wide market goes to Amazon with its first Kindle. Devices to store and read books electronically have since sprouted from nearly any brand, with even the drugstore chains offering their cheapo versions.
This poll is being created to find out which electronic reader is the most widely owned by the Writing.Com community.
After voting here, please take a second to vote in this follow up poll too. The questions are similar, but there is a slight, but significant difference.
And here is another poll. This one is trying to find out the age range of people using electronic reading devices of any brand.
Edit on 10/2/2012
To date, I have received 81 reviews for this poll. Many reviewers simply used the review to elaborate on the type of e-reader they have, or why they don't have one. There were many people who said I missed this or that e-reader as well as the option to read on a cell phone. Since technology has already moved on and what was new and hot when this poll came out has been overtaken by the next generation already, I want to let you know: I KNOW that my poll is not a complete listing of all the e-readers. But there is no way I can change the choices given. If I edit a line of the poll options, all the old votes stay. So, if I changed the "Black and white Nook" to "Glowlight Nook," it would show that many votes for the Glowlight.I don't want to close the poll since I am still getting votes and comments, but - there is no way I'll change the options.
