Check out these new Screen Choices on Tablets & eReaders!

One of the main features to evaluate when purchasing a new tablet or eReading device is the screen. And while there are a wide, and ever increasing number of products and brands to choose from, the decision can be made much simpler by approaching the different features systematically – and then determining which of the available choices best meet your needs.

The most fundamental consideration is whether to go for a black & white or color screen. Basic eReaders, like the Amazon Kindle, come with black & white screens.

This is because they seek to replicate the experience of reading an actual book, magazine, or newspaper. And to aide in this effort, these screens are not back-lit in the way regular computer screens are.

These two elements combine to deliver the closet thing to a printed page that you can experience on an electronic device.

The drawback of non-back-lit, black & white screens is that you cannot read them in low light situations. Of course, that has been the case with printed material since the invention of books, so no big change there. And Edison came-up with a solution to that problem.

But there are also two big advantages to black & white, non-back-lit screens: they can be easily read outdoors (whereas back-lit tablets cannot) and they are much less tiring on the eyes.

If staring at a computer screen for hours irritates your eyes, but reading a normal book doesn't – then these type of eReader devices were made for you. And since they are also the least expensive devices, you've made-out like a champ.

Another important consideration is screen size. The eReaders, such as the NOOK eBook Reader and Amazon Kindle, have 6” and 7” screens respectively.

This is usually just fine for most people using normal size fonts. But if you change to a bigger font (needed by many), then those size screens tend to be a little small and start to negatively impact the user experience.

The leading tablet screens have three big differences compared to eReaders:
*their color
*their back-lit
*their 10” in size

Taken together, these three elements make for a completely different user experience. Color screens let you experience graphics and multi-media as they were intended to be seen.

And 10” screens not only are better at accommodating those who want to use larger fonts, but they provide a much better experience for watching films or any of the many other computer like features of these devices.

Also, back-lit screens allow the user to read in low light situations. And as with a regular computer, screen brightness is adjustable.

However, as mentioned above, this feature also renders these devices unreadable in bright sunlight. And even in brightly lit indoor situations, screen glare can be an issue.

But the bottom-line is that there is now enough variety in screen types to accommodate nearly every imaginable preference.

You can read them like a book, or a desktop computer; the choice is all yours. And that's really what we all want; choice.
