There have been so many that I'm having trouble keeping them straight. But so far the only serious contender  to Amazon's Kindle is, near as I can tell, Barnes and Noble's "Nook." (Yes, if you use one, you're enjoying nookie....)

So this excellent piece today at the Atlantic is  helpful: A summary of the differences, pros, and cons of the two devices. Big tip o' the mug to Dexter for sending the link my way.
