The holiday season is right around the corner and there have been a number of notable new e-readers that have been released in 2015. There are two specific models that have not been announced yet, but its expected a second generation Kindle Voyage and the Nook Glowlight Plus will be revealed sometime this month. We asked the question, what is the next e-reader you will buy and the data is very interesting.
Two weeks ago 582 people weighed in and voted on what e-reader is most appealing. The runaway winner by a wide margin is the second generation Kindle Voyage. It got 45.8% of the vote, which once again proves that Amazon has the best build quality when it comes to design and the Kindle bookstore is the destination of choice.
In a distant second position with 15.64% of the overall vote is the Barnes and Noble Nook Glowlight Plus. This e-reader attained FCC certification last month and the product listing was accidentally leaked a week ago. We broke the story earlier on in the year that Barnes and Noble was actively developing a new reader and the design was outsourced to Netronix. Barnes and Noble loyalists have been waiting with bated breath for a new reader, since the last one the bookseller released was in 2013.
The Kobo Glo HD was originally released earlier in the year and this e-reader is in 3rd place with 11.51% of the vote. This e-reader is being billed as a Kindle Voyage killer, since it has the exact same specs and only costs $129. It is quite surprising that this e-reader has proven to be quite popular with voters, but the Kobo Touch 2.0 that came out last month only captured 2.92% of peoples interest.
