You guys all know that I’m a serious fan of eBooks. I think this is one technology that’s going to take off big time in 2009, though I’m not convinced that the DS is the platform to help it win worldwide domination. The thing that makes e-readers like Sony Reader and the BeBook so desirable is their use of e-Ink technology, as that’s a lot kinder on the eyes than LEDs, giving you a comfortable reading experience.
The large screen size is also a plus, so why would you want to give these benefits up to read Dickens on a teeny tiny DS Lite? Sure, if you already own one you might see it as a way to save yourself an extra £100 pounds, but then you do have to put up with the issues that come with reading on a DS.
