About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of e-reader devices. E-readers, also known as e-book readers, are portable electronic devices used to read digital content, such as e-books and periodicals. E-readers are limited to reading e-books, magazines and newspapers. E-readers differ from tablets in that they generally do not have access to other applications, cameras, microphones or mobile games. Additionally, e-readers typically have a lower screen resolution and refresh rate, as well as limited computing power; this lack of additional features allows e-readers to have a much longer battery life and more mobility. The main suppliers of e-readers are electronic manufacturers. Key buyers of e-readers are primarily schools and consumers.
