Ok I have been researching the nook for quite awhile. A friend just pointed out that on www.woot.com they are having a sell with the Kindle. They are the same price (Give or take 5-10$), and im not sure which one... I'm liking the nook better, but people still say its sluggish. Ive looked at some vids, and it looks pretty fast - there are a few slower features... I like that they added games, and internet browser.
So here is a compiled list for the Pros/Cons of each:
PRO: ~Faster ~Longer Battery ~Argubly a better ebook store ~Lighter ~Broswer
CON: ~No microSD to expand memory (Wats the point of having a music player if you hardly have any space?) ~Limited format ability ~No removable battery ~Browser is only grey and most pages come up as text ~No Wi-Fi ~Does not nativly support PDF ~No Games ~No touchscreen ~Less costimizing
PRO: ~Supports most of the heavily used formats ~Natavly supports PDF ~Touchscreen ~Touchscreen is not the reading section so the text is clearer and sharper ~microSD slot for upgradability ~Games ~Wi-Fi AND 3G ~Browser (Full color and Grey-Will display images) ~You can change screensaver
CON: ~Sometimes Sluggish - Could be the break... ~Less battery time ~Heavier (Could be a con or a pro) ~Less Magazine and Newspaper coverage
Ok so im planning a trip down to the B&N store tomorrow and i hope to have a desision on it (So i could get it while its on sale on Woot - If i go that route). So maybe ill be in possetion of a nook tommorrow, but i would like anyone's opinion on this, and if you would like to add to the list i would be glad to have some help getting a more comprehensive list.
And i hope this is somewhat the right place to put this thread !

Thanks for all that help out there :P. I have bought the nook and am now charging. I hope to write a detailed review of the nook after i have used it for a period of time .
105 people read this, but they can't put down their own opinion? Just a little curious why that would be... Maybe no one has an opinion??
My wife has a nook and I thoroughly enjoy it. I didn't really compare it to the Kindle much.
I would really like to know what you think of your Nook. I was thinking of buying one, but was concerned about the battery life and reports of it being sluggish.
After a firmware update the Nook is significantly faster. The battery life is also excellent, with close to 7 days standby and over 48 hours of use. The lack of back lighting really helps battery life.
Sorry, totally forgot to write a review on it. Yes, it is almost perfect. There are a few occasional glitches or sluggishness, but the majority has been ironed out.
Hey, cmcghee358, how much reading time do you estimate you get on a charge? It seems to vary unit to unit...
I'm not sure, I got it for the wife. So I haven't had a long session with it. And she's pretty anal about keeping it on the charger.
haha so am I, I just seems to drain faster than most people. Might have gotton a defective battery, but it lasts long enough for me .
