gTablet has good battery life too, but not sure of battery life when playing videos or the elocity a7 but again not sure of battery life playing videos.
Readers, I get both eInk and LCD for good daylight reading and good poorly lit reading.
Comparing to the iPad? Are you nuts? NC will be slower and need some extra hacking to come even close in general functionality, but should beat it as a reader even stock unless B&N did their job wrong.

I don't own or have an iPad but the Nook Color offers a good browsing experience. I had several crashes tough and I had to restart the whole device in order to use the browser again. The Nook Color virtual keyboard is good also, big enough and responsive.
At the moment I write this post, NC does not support Flash, same for iPad (of course, SJ hates Flash, lol) but speculating, NC will receive and update in 2011 which could fix that. Apple is not planning to provide such support, at least not now.
As a tablet and comparing between iPad and Nook color, I would prefer the Nook Color: better price, lighter and runs Linux. Even with the locked Android Market (not talking about any kind of hacks, just the device "as is") I think the NC gives you more bang for your bucks. Apple has a very closed market and environment that I just dislike.

I don't even know why the K3 is included in the title because the OP has already dismissed the K3. Based on what the OP is discussing that is a good call because the K3 is an e-reader not a tablet computer.
