This tablet may not give you the crisp paper quality but it does have really good colour quality that makes it ideal for reading graphic novel, comics and magazines. Since it’s just a tablet that duals up as an e-reader you may not get the added features of a designated e-reader. However, you will have access to Apple’s iBook catalogue, which is amazing.
