These days there are so many eBook Readers on the market that even the most informed person in the matter might need a while to decide which one is the best in terms of quality, software, design, battery life and of course, price. Below, there is a list of the most popular eBook Readers under $100. Most of them are new models, but there are some refurbished editions that came out with extra features and software updates.
Kindle Touch – $99: this model is not on the market at this price for the moment, the Special Offer edition is yet to be released. However, the Kindle Touch is probably the best eBook Reader under $100, considering its features and Amazon’s input. The full price of the Kindle is $140, so this offer should not be missed.
Barnes & Noble Nook Touch (refurbished) – $79: This device will be a great purchase and the pre-owned version has a $60 price cut versus the brand new one, but gets the same warranty. If it undergoes a little “work”, the Nook Touch can become a decent E Ink tablet.
Kindle 4 – $79: This version is the basic eBook Reader from Amazon. Its original price is $109; the current price comes with a special offer.
Kindle Keyboard – $99: Conservative users may still buy a Kindle version that has an incorporated physical keyboard. The full price for the Kindle 3 is $139, so this is a pretty good deal for those who prefer this model.
Sony PRS-350 (refurbished) – $69: This Sony eBook Reader comes from last year and has been rejuvenated a bit. The 5 inch touchscreen refurbished device has a higher price originally ($152), so this is a limited offer.
Kobo Wi-Fi (refurbished) – $59: Another special offer that won’t last long. This eBook Reader is a strong basic device, with a $99 price for the new models.
Skytex Primer – $79: Another eBook Reader from last year, with a 7 inch display; it features a music and video player and a FM radio.
As the holidays approach, most retailers will lower their prices for merchandise and allow you to find the eBook Reader that perfectly suits you. So many new models come out every day that it’s hard to keep up, but as you can see, very good products are available for under $100, slick and light models which will make for a great Christmas present. Why get a book when you can get an eBook Reader with thousands of books on board?
