The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite features a new display with higher contrast, higher resolution, and an LED lighting system that Amazon says simulates ambient lighting.

Description

The Kindle Touch is centered around a six inch infrared multi-touch E-Ink display. Navigation is performed through what Amazon refers to as EasyReach, which divides each page into three distinct touch areas. The new X-Ray feature complements purchased content by gathering all historical references and topics of interest within a given book and providing detailed information from Wikipedia and Shelfari for each. Integrated Wi-Fi allows free access to AT&T hotspots within the United States.

A slight refresh to last year's Kindle, Amazon updated the Kindle to include crisper text and some new fonts while also dropping the price.

The Sony Reader PRS-T2 is an e-reader with a touch-sensitive 6-inch E Ink Pearl display. It comes with 2GB of internal storage expandable via microSD to 32GB, six built-in dictionaries, and reads ePUB and PDF documents natively.

The Kobo Mini is an E-reader with a 5-inch E-ink display. Featuring a 2GB built-in memory, an 800MHz processor, built-in Dictionary, and social reading capabilities allowing you to share what you're reading on Facebook and Twitter.
