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.

I can see the 1.6 oz weight difference and AFFS+ display as a factor for those using the Vox as an ereader. Since I'm using a device of this type as a tablet, those features are totally irrelevant for me.

Waiting to see how the Vox, Fire, and NC II do in the real world.
