Samsung ebook readers reviewed

Which? ebook reader expert Mike Briggs says: 'We were disappointed with Samsung's first attempt at an ebook reader, the E60. It was bulky, heavy and sluggish compared to our Best Buys. Hopefully this version will be an improvement'. 

We'll be putting the E65 straight through our lab tests where we put our experts to work assessing how well the devices perform.
