Hand-held devices have reached the peak of popularity during the past year. Thus, the most in-demand gift item for the past holiday seasons is no other than those electronic book readers that are most loved by both avid and non-avid readers. If you happened to check on that eBook Reader Product Comparison, you will find out that among the many eBook readers nowadays, only three of them are continuously competing for the top post in terms of market share.

The three most known eBook readers in the market nowadays include the Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes and Noble’s Nook, and Sony Reader. Of course, since they are made by different experts from different companies, their specs, pricing, and privacy issues also vary one from the other. Thus, it is a great idea to find out what the experts would say and what those reviews would have to tell you about those various devices so that you’ll be guided in making up your mind to choose which one to trust and buy.

It was Amazon that first introduced to everyone the online bookstore. It allows people to shop conveniently at the comfort of his or her home, eliminating the hassles that come along when you have to go out and rush to the store just to buy that desired book. The next thing that Amazon did was to make a remarkable innovation in the world of reading by creating its initial eBook reader, the Kindle, which was eventually followed by the second edition which is packed with more additional features, the Kindle 2.

By the way it looks, the improvised Kindle is slimmer, faster, and smarter than the original Kindle. Likewise, it guarantees fast download which is said to be done in a matter of minutes only. Also part of the package of this Kindle 2 are amazing features such as its developed E-Ink display, built-in dictionary, and a memory that is capable of storing not just hundreds but thousands of those books that you love to read. The device can even let you subscribe to other reading materials such as magazines, newspapers, and blogs.

Another helpful feature of Amazon Kindle 2 is its text-to-speech capability. On the device itself, some noticeable things that did change are its Next Page keys which became smaller and inward-facing already to avoid accidental page-turning. You can also access its home screen immediately by simply clicking on its added Home button. Still another additional features that it has are the two stereo speakers on the rear of the device and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.

Another improvement was done on its QWERTY keyboard that is now rounded and is good for making notes, searching, typing-in web addresses, and in doing other applications. The space bar is also placed in front and center this time. No matter how these eBook readers are competing for the market share, things will still happen according to the needs and wants of the users. Thus, no one will actually win such competition.
