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:
~Argubly a better ebook store
~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
~Does not nativly support PDF
~Supports most of the heavily used formats
~Natavly supports PDF
~Touchscreen is not the reading section so the text is clearer and sharper
~microSD slot for upgradability
~Wi-Fi AND 3G
~Browser (Full color and Grey-Will display images)
~You can change screensaver
~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 !
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.
