    Kobo Arc 7HD review

    By 8 November 2013

    Most of the tablets sold on the high street come bundled with a SIM and subscription these days. Not so the Kobo Arc 7HD. Championed by WHSmith, it’s Wi-Fi only, runs on the Android operating system - as championed by many smartphones and tablets out...

    By 8 September 2013

    Aside from the headline-grabbing launches at IFA 2013, Sony also announced a new Reader model, the PRS-T3. Sony describes the Reader as "slim, light and a pleasure to hold" and we have to say, we agree wholeheartedly. The curved metal back and rounded...

    By 4 September 2013

    Amazon has announced a new version of the Kindle Paperwhite, its eBook reader that offers an illuminated display. We were big fans of the original 2012 version, but can Amazon go one better in 2013? Yes, it can. The new Kindle Paperwhite has the same...

    Kobo Mini review

    By 31 December 2012

    This, the smallest e-reader on the market at around 5 inches, is gadget nirvana for book-loving commuters. The secret is in its size, which is carefully judged to fit into a handbag, a chest pocket of a shirt, or even the back pocket of a pair of jeans....

    Kobo Glo review

    By 24 October 2012

    When we first saw a prototype of the 6-inch, touch-screen Kobo Glo and its built-in ComfortLight a few months back, we asked a simple question to its makers: why didn't anyone think of this idea before? As it turns out, they did – you only have to check...

    Sony Reader PRS-T2 review

    By 19 October 2012

    The ebook reader market is polarising. Where there were once plenty of manufacturers pumping out over-priced E Ink devices, we now have a few big names gunning for glory. With ebook readers, the mantra that content is king really rings true. The missing...

    Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2012) review

    By 12 October 2012

    The biggest issue with the Amazon Kindle and its E-Ink technology is that while it's fantastic for reading on the beach, in broad daylight, or lasting for what seems an eternity on a single charge, try to read it in bed and you'll struggle without some...

    Kindle 6-inch (2012) review

    By 5 October 2012

    No one could really accuse the Kindle of ever having been massively over-priced. For one, there has always been a good range of models, giving users the choice about what they spend and what options they get. But recently, Amazon has made the entry-level...

    By 26 September 2012

    US bookseller Barnes & Noble has finally entered the UK eBook reader market by bringing Nook devices to these shores - and from the playtime we've had with them so far, we're mightily glad. Two products will hit the UK in October, the Nook Simple Touch...

    Amazon Kindle for Mac adds gesture support, we flick through some books

    By 11 September 2012

    Amazon Kindle for Mac has added gesture controls for Lion and Mountain Lion users, so Pocket-lint fired up the app to see whether it makes a difference. The new app hasn't really changed that much although it is also worth noting that if you've got a...

    BeBook Pure review

    By 10 September 2012

    BeBook has been producing ebook readers for several years, offering a more affordable way to get access to a reader device without the premium asking price of some rivals. Much has changed in recent years, with prices dropping as the market becomes more...

    Amazon Kindle Touch 3G review

    By 24 April 2012

    It wasn't all that long ago that we reviewed the new Kindle. As you might imagine, we loved it. This is, after all, the best known and best designed ebook reader on the market. It's simple, cheap, and pretty much single-purpose. What it does, it does...

    Kobo Vox review

    By 15 March 2012

    The Kobo Vox eReader is a 7-inch Android tablet looking to offer the same sort of experience as the Kindle Fire in the US. With the Kindle enjoying successes State-side, Kobo is looking to replicate that, and bring reading and wider multimedia capabilities...
