e-Eeader, e-Book Reader or e-Book device, is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading digital e-books and periodicals. eReaders are usually designed as 7" and bigger tablets, with the exception of YotaPhone which is 5.5".
Any device that can display text on a screen may act as an e-reader, but specialized e-reader devices may optimize portability, readability (especially in sunlight), and battery life for this purpose. Their main advantages over printed books are portability since an e-reader is capable of holding thousands of books while weighing less than one and the convenience provided due to add-on features in these devices.
