If the screen can at least match the contrast of the Nook then it not having the new Pearl screen isn't a huge loss. Though the new pearl screen is a bit better than the nook, it's not head and shoulders or as remarkable as you may think it is.


Overall I would still recommend the nook wi fi simply because I love the color lcd screen of the nook but if it's not for you than this IMHO tops the Kindle wi fi. It's cleaner and sleaker looking, epub/checking out books from your local library. And plus the Borders/Kobo bookstore platform is not too shabby at all.

If this comes back with positive reviews, then this could be a nice contender. Certainly more attractive than the Kindle wi fi, size, weight, and feel.
