Dimensions of the most popular ereaders (chart)

Updated on 18.10.2012

In the chart below you’ll see the dimensions – and just the dimensions – of the most popular ereaders on the market.

The list will be updated frequently. If you’d like us to add any particular model, please leave a tip in the comments below.

Wikipedia has a very detailed comparison of most popular models of ereaders, but what it lacks is dimensions. And sometimes the only thing users want to do is to check the width and the height of the ereader. Knowing the exact dimensions is very helpful when you’re about to buy a cover or a sleeve.

We have a list of ereader covers, cases and sleeves. As you’ll see, some of the online stores have a rather general description like “universal” or “fits all ereader models”.

The thing is not to buy the cover which is too small, but also – not to get the one, which is too large. If you’ll buy a sleeve which fits iPad 2, and you’ve got a Nook Tablet, you most probably won’t be enjoying it.

The dimensions are shown in both inches and millimeters. Abbreviations are: H – height, W – width, D – depth. The thumbnail pictures are reflecting the difference in sizes. Click on them to be redirected to producers’ pages with more detailed information.

As a reference, here are the formats of the paperback books:

  • A Format: H/W – 178 / 110 mm ( 7.01″ / 4.33″ ),
  • B Format: H/W – 198 / 130 mm ( 7.8″ / 5.12″ ),
  • C Format: H/W – 216 / 135 mm ( 8.51″ / 5.32″ )
