Black Friday - $79 Nook Touch vs $85 Kindle 3G Keyboard (special offers)

I already have a Sony PRS650 that I'm perfectly happy with, but I wouldn't mind having a backup device that I can loan to other people. I don't mind doing conversions between formats with calibre, though I have more experience with ePubs.

So, which device wins out?

Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch Limited Edition for $79

or

Amazon Kindle 3G Keyboard (with special offers) for $85?


Personally, I like the 3G of the Kindle, though it's probably unnecessary for me now as I just got a 4G account on my smartphone. The Nook is running android and it seems like it can be rooted to run the Market and various apps, which may be fun to mess with.

I'd love to hear some opinions and arguments for which one I should go for.
