I think the Nook STR, in terms of form factor, has everything I want in an ebook reader. Configurable side page turn buttons, touch screen, and wi-fi. I just don't think the implementation has been great, I don't like the restrictions around having non-B&N books, or the lack of a supported browser, etc. All of this may be fixable by rooting the STR and it's still on my "list" but I don't know if I should wait.
I know all Pearl screens should be similar and I have never heard anyone saying that Nook's have better screens.... but that model I saw in store had a much better screen than the other models on display - SONY 350 and T1, various Kindles and Kobo Touch. The Nook just stood out...
