[Amazon.ca] Kindle Paperwhite $119.99

Was waiting for this to go down in price. It has been $110 in the past, but I don't think it will hit that soon as they released the new non-paperwhite Kindle recently for $120 itself. That one is on sale for $89.99.

Amazon is also selling the Echo for $99.99 and the Echo Spot for $129.99

Kindle has better OS and build quality.

Kobo is better due to being non-proprietary and can read epubs. Kindle can only read Mobi or A3ZN files. However, this can be gotten around of via Calibre and converting the Mobi/A3ZN files to Epub and vice versa.

If you read manga/comics, Kobo has higher resolution scans than Kindle, which are heavily compressed. (note: this only applies to Kindle/Kobo bought mangas/comics. Obviously if you import your own it'll be at that resolution).

If you don't care about reading manga/comics, just buy the cheapest version with the smallest hard drive space. You can fit thousands of regular ebooks on a 4gb hard drive.

If you plan on reading manga/comics, then get the 8gb or 32gb versions (recommend 32gb).

The 8gb version can fit about ~70-80 full manga volumes (if properly formatted). Just note that you won't get the actual full storage space due to the OS and you would want to leave about 1gb free for paging. The 32gb will allow you to store multiple long running manga series without having to constantly delete volumes to free up space.

If you plan on importing your own manga/comics, I highly recommend you use Kindle Comic Converter to format the manga/comic to the chosen device's resolution. This will save space since you don't need high resolution images on an e-ink e-reader (yet).

The typical manga will be at around 60-80mb after conversion.
