We posed the question last month on what e-reader our readers intend to purchase for the holiday season. Over 805 people responded to the poll and some of the results were very interesting. If anything, it is a huge indication on how customers are responding to specific devices and what they intend to buy. This may be tremendously relevant if you cannot make up your mind on what to buy for the holiday season.
In first place is the latest device and the first tablet from Kobo, the Vox. It is fairly surprising that many of our readers are opting into the Kobo ecosystem by a very decisive margin. One of the advantages of this device is that you can buy books, magazines, newspapers and download apps in almost every major country in the world. Meanwhile, the Amazon Kindle Fire holds second place which is on par, price-wise with the Vox.
