Wired Rates E-Readers

The electronic edition of Wired has an article called "IPad, SchmiPad: 10 E-Readers and Tablets You Can Get Right Now" The most interesting thing about the reviews of the ten readers covered was where some of the current products were ranked. The top four ranked readers (from 6-10) were the Sony (which was called sluggish and sometimes unintuitive); and then the two Kindles (DX and 2) rated 8 and 10 - the 2 was rated the best. But in position #9 was the iPhone - the rap on it was "the iPhone actually makes an excellent, if diminutive, e-reader." Note the iPhone will have a bigger brother on April 3 (solving the "diminutive" problem).
