An alternative to the Kindle or Nook if you’re willing to sacrifice a bit of screen quality and a bit more convenience

As an e-reader, the Pandigital Novel does exactly what it is supposed to do: decently displays the pages of e-books, e-magazines, and other electronic periodicals. It’s fairly quick to switch from one page to the next, and it has useful navigation features—especially its touch screen. Certainly, all the additional things the Novel can do adds to its appeal, but the bottom-line usefulness of many of them is a bit suspect. The most compelling feature of the Novel, in the end, is its low price, coming in at a bit less than you’d pay for the Wi-Fi-only version of either the Kindle or the NOOK. If you're very budget-strapped, that may be an acceptable compromise—and the more so the further you can find the Novel below its current $119 price. But be aware that you’ll be making some concessions in screen quality and the ease of browsing and buying books.
