Ereader Tablets

Written By: Kellie - Dec• 19•11

Ever since I learned about the Kindle Fire (which isn’t available to us Canadians *pout*) I have been somewhat obsessed with finding a comparable 7″ tablet/Ereader. A tablet would be super useful for me right about now and I do think it would be pretty useful as an ereader as I miss back-lighting and have been having some trouble with my Sony Reader as of late.

I’m not super tech savvy, but am trying to really do my research before making a purchase. All I need is an ereading program, a browser and netflix access and I’m happy but I know if I buy something that’s too sluggish or frustrating, I wont end up using it enough to justify buying it (exactly what happened with my netbook).

Chapters is selling the Kobo Vox, but the reviews I’ve read have been less than stellar. There are issues with it not acknowledging page turns etc. until the third or fourth try, which would drive me crazy. My biggest issue with my Sony Reader is that on some files it take a few seconds to turn the page, which can really ruin the flow of a book.

I’ve looked at a few other makes, but so far nothing is jumping out at me.

Have any of you tried out any of these smaller (7″ or so) tablets? Is it worth the money? Do you use them as an ereader? Let me know what you think.
