Text appears sharper (like in print) and pages can be turned by pressing the thumb against PagePress, a custom-designed force sensor. The Voyage is lighter and easier to hold. It has a 4-GB internal storage, good enough to store a thousand books. Weighing 188 gm, its battery lasts close to a week. Price: Rs 16,499
