E-ink is a solution for your #1 and #2. Personally, I can recommend Kindle. I've been using my ebook reader for 3 years and it made a big relief for my eyes. In my case it's Kindle Keyboard but version with touchscreen display is also available on the market: Kindle, 6" Glare-Free Touchscreen Display for £59.99 or All-New Kindle Paperwhite, 6" with ...

During my search for the reader, I have come across Barnes and Noble's Nook; which deserves a mention here, just in case anyone is looking for a budget e-book reader. About Nook, in the words of Barnes and Nobles: Our highest resolution E Ink® device helps you find your next read faster and has a new GlowLight that more evenly illuminates the entire ...

I have not pulled the trigger on this purchase, (because of the relatively high price), so this is not a hands-on recommendation. When I went looking for an e-reader for reviewing and consuming technical information, I was most tempted by the Icarus Excel. It is a 9.7" reader and allows for handwritten notes too. Since I was evaluating for technical ...

I can second Kindle as an option (I have used an older model and a paper white) - for reading novels and other easily rendered text-only fare, it is a great product. The ability to function in direct sunlight as well as darkness without destroying your eyes is a huge advantage over other options. The Kindle app is available on other platforms too though (...

You should get a Nook. There are several variances to the Nook e-reader - mainly it's between the Simple Touch, Simple Touch with GlowLight, and now GlowLight Plus. Basically it whether you want a backlight or not or you want refurbed or new. Let's see how it stacks up with your requirements: Everything FOSS. Moot point. Every ereader comes with built ...

The Kobo Aura H2o is what you need. its a pater proof e-reader with e-ink display and can survive 30 min in 1 meter deep water. It also has a hd display and supports almost all formats under the sun. I believe it's about 180 dollars. There is a case accessory that snaps off by the looks of it. This cover makes it so you don't stab the unit it self but the ...

DO NOT BUY Dasung. I spent around $1000 on their Paperlike, and it crashes after about 20-30 seconds the first time, and after 2-3 frames subsequently. I tried troubleshooting this with them, and they had me try different things, updated firmware, etc., until the 120-day deadline with PayPal passed (60+ days of this was purely shipping) -- and then, they'...

This is a tough one for a number of reasons. E-ink displays are traditionally way too slow for practical use in the capacity that you're talking about, the refresh rate is way too long and you end up with artifacts on the screen. I've tried this myself with an e-reader, it was not a good experience. This thread details some similar experiences, if that helps ...

I use the basic version of Kindle It can do all the following things: copy a PDF in a folder formats and uploads it to the e-reader. In addition, I use an app called Calibre which makes that process very simple and effortless. I generally use epub version books, compatible with iBooks. However, Calibre formats them according to Kindle's format and uploads ...

Your best bet currently is probably to wait for the rumored upcoming Nexus 7 2016 revision, since you want a tablet that will stay updated and your current Nexus 7 (2013) did, in fact, get updated to Android 6 Marshmallow after all. Edit: As it turns out you already own the 2013 revision; the second segment has been left for posterity. Since you aren't ...
