Well, a little extreme to compare, but you guys get the idea.
For that reason, I would stick to Amazon and Kindle. But I must admit B&N had made huge progress since Nook Tablet inception. They are making a more refine reader or tablet with each release. And for a company without the same resources like Amazon, that's a great accomplishment.
I still prefer B&N UI though, but the thing is that B&N ecosystem is still too small, at least for me, even in books selection.
Now, B&N needs to "exploit" those bricks and mortar locations at their max; train their employees, show the tablets to customer, doing demos, that's Amazon's weakness as Amazon is a virtual retailer, specially now that they lost Target and Walmart as physical showrooms
There should be more time for employees to get onboard as demo devices should arrive soon, so I was told today. Before it wasn't until release week and if I remember correctly, there wasn't even any formal announcement until then about the new devices to begin with.
Structured training hadn't happened as I inquired, at least not at the local store I most frequent probably cause there was no time. If it shouldn't have been that way regardless, then it is an issue for those specific stores.
It is good there was an early announcement as the Nexus 7 and the 7" KFHD are available giving the B&N offerings at least an option for potential buyers to ponder.
