Yes I see the Icon. I had to refresh the page twice before I saw it.

It'll do well in markets that don't have the Color or Fire.
I agree, no reason to dicth my nook for this.

However there are several major differences between the two.
  • Vox is running stock 2.3. //Nook has a home brew running 2.2
  • Vox is Open no hacking required. You can install any app you wish from GetJar and Amazon appstore //Nook is closed.
  • Vox has a different form factor. Many folks complain about the weight of the nook.
Last and most important.
  • Vox has AFFS+* vs. nooks IPS.

*AFFS+ is suppose to be REALLY good in daylight with similar screen quality of IPS.


Since this device is sold as a reading device and not a tablet the screen alone is reason to buy this over the nook and Fire.
