Considering giving an ereader for Xmas? Consider carefully

There are now several ereaders on the market in New Zealand and Australia.

You can buy a Kobo or a Sony off the shelf. And you can buy any number of devices online, including the Kindle. Which, according to Amazon is "our #1 bestselling item for two years running. It’s also the most-wished-for, most-gifted, and has the most 5-star reviews of any product on Amazon."

Of course there are the non-dedicated ereaders, including the iPods, iPhones and iPads. Indeed, electronic books are now the largest content category at the App Store.

So how do you choose which ereader to buy as a gift? Or even for yourself?
