Hey would like to pick your brain on I pads and e-readers. Do they do the same thing? how do they compare in price? Do you have either one? I would like to be able to go online to Pioneer Library system and download e-books to take on vacations and any time I am in the car.
The difference between a tablet (ipad or android) and a true ereader (amazon kindle or barnes and noble nook) is that ereaders are made for one thing and that is reading books on a little screen and tablets are more like a laptop with a touchscreen and no keyboard.
An Ipad can be found online for about $400 and a new Ipad2 new online for about $600
I do have friends that have ipad and ipad2 and also acer Android tablets which are cheaper and better than ipads in a lot of ways. Android tablets have a broad range from $150-$600 and the best one I've seen is the acer iconia tablet at $399 based on android 3.0 by google
