eReader: Device Comparison Site

An acquaintance on Mobile Read has put together what zie calls "the site I wish existed when I was choosing" an eReader. It's a device comparison site and it's actually pretty good, so I thought I'd reblog it here: ereaderlookup.

The value of a site like this is that most of us already know where to find the big names -- Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc. -- but it can be quite a bit harder to comparison shop the third party devices. I've been looking at the Onyx Boox M92 for awhile because it has a 9.7" screen, (semi-) touch support, and handles epub and pdf formats, but it took awhile to find the device back before this site existed. So it's pretty cool.

The downside to a site like this is that since the big booksellers -- Amazon, B&N, Kobo, etc. -- largely use DRM, a lot of third-party devices aren't necessarily automatically compatible with these stores. So the site could probably still use a little work, but the creator is definitely interested in feedback, so there's that.
