How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Pocket-Lint says:

Bigger? Yes. Better? Not really. More memory and better PDF handling are welcome but Kindle’s super-sized ebook reader might be too large for travellers and too small for anyone expecting a real digital newspaper.
