The Caffeinated Geek Tech Obsessed in Winnipeg

I’ve been thinking that an eBook reader would be handy since I travel a lot.  I’m not really all that worried about taking novels and pleasure reading as much as taking along work related books and reference material.

I haven’t really done a lot of research into the various options (Sony, Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) but am aware that not all content can be read on all readers even if it is in ePub format due to DRM.

Anybody got a recommendation on which device/store combination offers the best selection of technical reference for a .Net developer with a particular interest in software process engineering?

HELP!!

I used the Kindle DX for a while and loved it. It can read anything in PDF format just fine, which was mostly what I used.

Having said that I plan on buying an iPad mostly because it can be used for more than just reading eBooks.

Dylan,
With iPad are you thinking you will buy Kindle books (with Kindle App) or iBookstore ones? I'm curious about which bookstore has the better selection of Tech Books.

I switched from kindle to iPad and I am very happy.
There are several pdf readers for iPad and reading pdf of tech books on iPad can be even better experience than reading paper books.
Go for iPad - won't regret it.
