After reading comment on here, and hands-on actual Kindle sizing, follow-up reviews on few e-book makers such as Kobo, Nook, Sony, PocketBook, Onyx Boox...

My thoughts are:
0# Pace of e-book devices evolution is slow compare to tablets, pricey even for simple - yesterday technology (and device ends-up much larger than its tiny screen).
Only + pts is lighter than tablets.

1# Kindle Paperwhite 3 current having best screen, though 6 inch screen is kinda of small for me. (which is basically the screen-size of Kindles)

2# Kindle, Kobo, Nook... all uses different closed OS system book ecology, to lock you down to use only their book-resource library.

3# Only few e-books are larger than 6 inch, beyond 8 inch the device size seems rather too large for commuting reading and pricey.

So in the end, gotten a Onyx Boox T68ML:
- 6.8 inch - >30% screen space of 6 inch, yet right-size for 1 hand reading during commuting.

- based on Android OS access to Google Play allow cross access to multiple book ecology Kindle, Kobo, etc bookstores. Also support 3rd party e-book format reading.

-Sufficient high resolution dpi, almost as good KPW3, with back-lited.

- Can use MicroSD as expanable storage - upto 32GB.

For Android, get device with at least 1GB Memory, 8GB storage :for App speed, install apps & books storage, 300 dpi. If cost not a issue: I would bought a T76 plus.

Bought a alcatel pixi 6" to ise as ebook reader, so far so good. Got it from qoo10 for ard 110. Im happy with it. Battery not as lasting, glaribg all this not concern to me.

Initially wanted xiaomi mi max coz of the 6.4" screen sizebut even the lowest spec model will cost more than 200. No point.
