eReaders were out in force at the Consumer Electronics Show just two weeks ago, but with Apple's announcement looming on Wednesday it seems like the new Apple product is poised to make eReaders obsolete. Scramble as they might to add apps for color and video, the old eBook already seems one dimensional when compared with the rumored capacity of the new Apple tablet.

How long do you think eReaders will last? And which ones do you think are done? Vote in the slideshow below.

Amazon Kindle 2
 
Perhaps the most popular eReader currently on the market, Amazon's Kindle 2 (an update of its original Kindle) has a lot going for it. "The well-established Whisper Sync technology lets people keep track of a single book across multiple devices, there's a physical keyboard right up front, and the device can even browse the web," says Engadget. Drawbacks include the lack of support for ePub formats, and the inability to share eBooks with other devices.
