I think it depends on how you want to use a tablet. Someone who wants a tablet, as opposed to a book reader that you can watch your DVD collection on, that tablet person would be happier with the more powerful hardware in the Nook Tablet. I love my Nook Color but it's Internet browser is admittedly slow. Since I work out of my home I usually use my computer to access the Internet so for me, personally, the NC does everything I want.

When the new firmware on the N+ models starts rolling out you will probably see more excitement about both versions of these high-end Nooks. The apps we can get for both versions will make the news. At that point, a lot of current NC owners may decide to upgrade.

B&N has done some innovative things with books on the NC. Enhanced books will also change the equation, especially for non-fiction and text books. Right now Amazon has nothing that can render enhanced eBooks. The one I have is a history book and even though it is an early adaptation of the potential eBooks offer I think it's very impressive what a writer/publisher has done with this technology. Depending on how that development goes I may have to reevaluate my own decision to stay put with the older Nook Color and order the more powerful model.
