      With the app being available across a range of platforms some might argue that you no longer need to purchase an actual Kindle. The screens on most tablets and phones are reflective though, making it difficult to read outside or in bright lighting conditions. This is where the Kindles tend to win. They are designed primarily for reading in a variety of conditions.

      Kindle Wireless

      I read that I would get a lot of glare of my iPad if I used the kindle app plus it's a bit to big to chuck in my work bag

      My friend has a better solution, but I don't think that you'd want to copy her idea...

      Re: Kindle Wireless

      I use my Nexus 7 as a reader and find it great, it also has the advantage over a Kindle in that you can read anything on it withoout messing about with browsers and converters. I find it really useful especially when going on holiday, previously I would have to pack a book for each day I was away, now the Nexus carries them all. I only take one real book to read on the plane. I wouldn't want to nod off and drop my Nexus on the floor.

      One thing that does annoy me is that the cost of a Ebook is not that much lower than its hard copy counterpart. The sellers, Amazon, Google etc claim that this is because VAT is payable on Ebooks, where it is not on paper copies. In these 'must be green' days you would think that was counter productive and something the government should be looking at.

      ps I got rid of my iPad 3 because it was too big and heavy to carry around.
