Wiley launches new e-reader comparison site

From the press release:

Today, eReaders can carry thousands of titles, providing convenience and opportunities for reading never before available. To help make the eReader leap, eReaderResource.com has been developed by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. The site examines what an eReader is, what can be done with it, and which of the available devices is best on an individual basis.

eReaderResource.com has gathered information about the various eReaders out there to help consumers figure out which one is best for them. Wiley, a global publisher and valued source of information for more than 200 years, has developed this tool to help consumers tap into the power of an eReader to change the way they receive knowledge and entertainment no matter what the source.

eReaderResource.com examines and compares the following eReaders interactively: Amazon Kindle 2, Amazon Kindle DX, Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple iPad, Cybook Gen 3, Cybook Opus, IREX DR 1000s, IREX Dr 800, IREX Iliad 2 Standard, Skiff Reader, Sony Daily Edition, Sony Pocket, & Sony Touch.

I like the site. True, it's missing Pocketbook, Bebook, Astak, Jetbook, Libre, and Hanvon, but it has one detail that makes it better than almost any other comparison site:

It doesn't cover devices that don't exist.

Most so called comparison sites will include reviews of devices like the Polymer Vision Readius, which was never released to market. Or, take the Astri MyID. I am one of 2 people in the world who have actually held the device and written about it. You'd be surprised at the number of sites who have posted a "review" based on my short peice.

About Nate Hoffelder (11464 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
