I use a Kobo Aura currently (upgraded from my previous Kobo Mini). It's
just an ereader, and has about a month of battery life. My daughter uses
a Kobo Arc, which is an Android tablet, so maybe that's an option for
more tablet functionality, rather than just a reader.

Bit of a Kobo fan, in case you missed it ;)
