Once you've got a reading app installed, and if that is all you want to do with it, none of that should really matter, but if you want a general Android tablet, this won't give a fair impression of what they are capable of, compared to something modern like a Nexus 7.
I agree, I got a refurb Nook Color +n2a card for the kids last Christmas, and it is ok.....runs fine on the Nook side, which we never use. The NC side is, as murraypaul says, a little laggy, a little slow, and the battery life is not too good. But at least they can play Angry Birds Star Wars for free, which they can't do on my Fire. I would much rather have an open android tablet, such as the Nexus, than a tablet that is dedicated as a color reader and tied to a store like the B&N tablets are. Much as I would love the new Fire, I would rather spend the money (if I had any haha) on a Nexus.
