Book readers for the iPad: Which ones?

I don’t normally point to product comparisons since they date quickly and it’s easiest enough for most librarians to find these review. However, I thought that this one was particularly good (and I have an iPad so it’s a personal interest too).

Apple iPad Showdown: Battle of the eReader Apps
by Jason Perlow at ZDNet

It covers:

Kindle for the iPad
Barnes & Noble eReader
Kobo Reader / Borders eBooks
Ibis Reader
Stanza
vBookz

I might just download the other three too.

  1. It’s a nice article, but the phrase “rearranging chairs on the Titanic” comes to mind. A bit extreme, but the article implies much more personal choice than is the reality.
    I have 4 e-reader apps on my iTouch, not by choice, but because of all the proprietary formats that books are being sold in. I’m frustrated with the publishers & distributors who are making the purchase and use of e-books more complicated than necessary. I feel as if they don’t want e-books to succeed this time around either.
