The Kindle 3 is the latest entrant into the already crowded e-reader market, and if you believe the hype from some quarters of the Web – we certainly do – this sleek gray machine is the best electronic reading device Amazon has ever manufactured. But how does the Kindle 3 stack up against the Barnes & Noble Nook, the Borders Kobo, or even the Apple iPad? Let's take a look at the scorecards.
