Apple's iPad vs. e-readers

Apple's iPad tablet may rival e-book readers, but these six e-readers have life in them yet

Skiff Reader

Skiff LLC showed the Skiff Reader at CES and outdid the Que with an 11.5 inch grayscale touchcreen display and weighing 17.5 ounces.It will run on Wi-Fi and 3G, and boasts one week of battery life but that is probably without wireless. No shipping date or price was announced. Skiff is also working on a color version that could be ready by the end of the year. Skiff LLC is a Hearst Corp. incubator and is working on creating an e-publishing platform that works with a variety of devices and a number of publishers. The Skiff display relies on a metal foil e-paper technology from LG Display.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
