    Why not get a Kindle? £79 and you have a bigger screen, and it reads PDFs as well as kindle books.

    If you're going for a phone - look for something with a large screen. I've done the odd bit of reading on my iPhone, but I doubt I'd manage an entire book comfortably.

    Finally, I got an iPad - fantastic as long as the sun isn't out (we're in the UK so no problems there).

    +1 to boffy, get a kindle they are cheap enough these days. But if you must use a phone then go for the one with the largest screen, the kindle app is available on all major os's ios,android etc so. The desire has quite a large screen and should be fairly cheap these days (my 2 year contract is nearly up, so I guess they should be cheap).

    Keep in mind that for smaller screens pdf's dont scale that well so text maybe very small indeed so its always best to buy the kindle (or whatever book service you go for) as they should look better on a device.

    Why not go with audiobooks and podcasts ? Audio generally more practical to do learning on the move, then if you want more take a netbook also...

    I listen to podcasts on my phone when ever I am out and about. Reading on your phone could cause a bit of strain on your eyes so wouldnt recommend it.

    This pretty much - currently listening to TWiT podcasts, also I converted all CBTs to audio files so I could listen on my long commute to work. I got the idea from Craigie. :)

    I use laptop/tablet for reading as its much easier than trying to read on phone. I found the Kindle a bit hard to flick through the PDF's/pages... can't beat a proper book for that!

    The 4.7" screen on my HTC Titan makes reading relatively strain free. A Kindle would probably be the smarter choice however. But nothing beats good old paper back

    Kindle is the top eBook readers as far as I know. I became a fan of Kindle when I started to read eBooks and will be a fan if the Kindle would continue in upgrading some features. No one could beat Kindle as my eBook reader.
