There is a case to be made for the fact that 2010 will be remembered as the year eBooks solidified themselves as a veritable cultural mainstay. It will be the year when eReaders really took hold.

While eReaders have not been absolutely perfected, and paper books are still being printed, bought, sold and read, eReaders nevertheless have become part of the cultural landscape. So which one is best? The Nook, Kindle and iPad have been battling it out for quite some time, but the future remains uncertain.

Here's a roundup of information and reviews of eReaders for the holiday season so that you can decide which one you prefer. Nothing beats user experience. Let us know yours in the comments section below.

Amazon Kindle

According to the Associated Press, the Kindle "weighs half a pound, making the device from Amazon.com Inc. thinner and lighter than Barnes & Noble Inc.'s Nookcolor, its strongest rival. The Kindle also lasts longer on a charge: up to one week with Wi-Fi on and two to three weeks with it turned off."

The Kindle has garnered positive reviews across the board, praised for its light weight and compact size. Still, the eReader has been faulted for its slow page turns and its lack of versatility.
