It's not like I spend all my time in the Kindle forums harassing their users.
The perfect end all, be all device does not (yet) exist. Personally lack of web browser is a non-issue to me. I love the loaning option, free B&N reading, removable battery, etc, etc. Personally I don't like the physical real estate of a keyboard on a device like the Kindle. I'm using the reader to...read, not type a thesis.
I'm new around here but I'm sensing a bit of fanboy-ism much like gaming consoles.
So you noticed!
Seems this goes on in every forum - those who feel their device is the best bashing another...
I think the nook is interesting and innovative in their design. The things, as far as I am concerned, it has going for it is Ereader DRM and Adobe ADE.
Many bash Ereader DRM and its format here - I happen to like it and only buy books in that format. I use it on my netbook and it allows you to change to any font and size, supports hyperlinks, and has dictionary support.
So take the bashing with a grain of salt and sort out the spin being put out and then decide what best suits your needs.
