i went with the Barns & Noble nook because i could download ebook using the EBUB . Nook runs Android. it all depends on what you want to do. do you want only wireless, or do you want 3G also? do you want to buy books only or use the library? do you want an ereader that works like a smart phone and lets you access the 'net to download books, or do you only want to buy from amazon or whatever? black and white, color, back lighting?
