Do the reading capabilities match, and is there the same reading content as there would be on the arc as there is on the nexus? Really appreciate a reply thank you
You will have access to the same books whether you get a Kobo or the Nexus. You can get books from Google on a Kobo & you can use the Kobo app & get books from the Kobo store on the Nexus.
As far as reading, Arc has a better screen for reading outdoors if that matters to you. Nexus has ICS but the max storage you can get is 32g with no expandable storage. Arc has the older version of android but there's an update in the works for this. Once that comes out the Arc will also have ICS. They also have max storage of 64g, also without expandable storage.
....also the Arc is nicer looking
