I like the Kindle 3 more than the original Nook
The Kindle 3 Text to speech sounds like a book or a robot babel and it would not hurt sales of audio .
The Nook Color looks fun
I thought the Nook 3G sucked because all I could do with it is the order book and the screen is short , it was not so great , with my ham hands
I thought the Nook started with better ideas, but Kindle had more time to work out kinks is why I think the Nook Color is probably good , but only looked at the store for ten minutes.
I bought the Kindle 3
If I had unlimited funds , I would go with the iPad , but a laptop over a ebook reader
Are you sure you want an eBook reader ? best selling e-books often cost more than paperbacks.
You also have access to more books in the public domain and free and if you like independent authors often have electronic books before they are published in dead tree
I can buy the dead tree version , because I like being able to have the tangible book
If you are a geek , you might want a tech book reader for the coolness factor or read lengthy books that are hard to hold
The good thing about Nook is that you can play with those working at Barnes and Nobel
Hello , navyblue44 , when choosing an e-reader , it is necessary to consider not only the physical properties of the device , but also compare eBook stores behind it . Sony has never been a contender for any comparison by anyone as they only have like 5 books in their Ebook store and devices are overpriced for what they offer. Borders is behind Kobo / Cruz devices in U.S. and as was heard , Borders is on a brink of bankruptcy . Kindle and Nook are the only devices to be considered as their eBook stores with over one million free public ebooks as well as over a million of ebooks that you need to pay available .
Having that out of the way , then you must decide which screen you want : e -Ink or LCD . Depends on what you're reading . If only black
