Any Suggestions as to which smart tech (phone, i pad, kindels, so on) is best for the digital comic format. I really would like to switch to digital and want what ever is currently the best thing out there. But whichever thing i buy I would like for it to be a convenient thing to carry around. I'm on the go a lot. My parents say kindles is the best. My friends say i phones are great for reading something like comics. I feel that small things will strain my eyes.
@Ganthetsward20: I recommend the Google Nexus 7. It's very cheap as well as one of the best android tablets available (my opinion and that of a tech website I frequently visit). It is smaller than some tablets but text in comics is still easy to view with the full page showing. I actually switched entirely to digital comics recently mostly because of how much I enjoy reading on it :)
@blur1528: I have a pay to use cell. No internet, but i am about to get an Iphone soon from my friend who just got an Iphone5 . I dont know what version though. I also dont know if that's a big enough screen for a digital comic. I do like the page by page look of things. The only other thing I have is a laptop that is from like 2009. I am thinking about a kindle fire its a bit bigger then an iphone sceen and i could usee it for books. Its not to bulky and would be easy to transport with me. But I would like to know if there is something better or if there is a better place to buy these things and how to buy digital comics once i get something.
@Ganthetsward20: I couldn't find the article on the website I mentioned but here is the review from a magazine I read :)
If by other books you mean ebooks, I wouldn't know as I only read books in print. Films are very good and it comes free with one film - I think it depends on how much memory you get as to which film, I got Ice Age with 32GB.
@Ganthetsward20: I actually enjoy reading comics on the iPhone. I have an iPhone 4S and both the comiXology and Marvel apps are really good on there. You swipe to move from panel to panel and in this manner I find it easy to read comfortably. I have yet to really wish the screen was larger. I've used a non-iOS based tablet before to read comics, and even though it had a larger screen I felt that the functionality and resolution/clarity of the images were inferior.
@blur1528: Well its cool to know that the resolution doesn't improve any with a bigger screen. So the other thing I'm Curious about is: If I have both a tablet and and smart phone but they're put out by different companies , like apple and whomever puts out the nexus will i have access to the same digital comics or will i have to make separate accounts?
Personally, I think the iPad is the way to go. I'm not a fan of reading comics on the iPhone (or other phones for that matter). The small screen size takes too much away from me.
The iPad has a really sharp resolution and comics look great on it. If you can swing it, I'd say to go with that over a Nook or Kindle Fire. The iPad's larger screen is perfect for reading comics, but it's still light enough that I can carry it with me wherever I travel.
