And since the thread has been revived, I'm going to be mean and say it sounds better than a confusing PRS-XXX avalanche (650, 750, 500.34?).
I also admit to liking the name of the "nook".

"Nook" is cute but a bit empty..it seems to need a little more to it, a little something to make it sound more inviting. "Reading Nook " is too obvious, though.

How is saying I have a 650 more confusing then you saying I have a Kindle. When I say I have a 650, it's a known model. You know which Sony I have. If you say I have a Kindle, I have no idea which Kindle you mean. So unless you say I have a Kindle 3, or Kindle DXG, I have no idea which Kindle you have.

So the name Kindle without any version qualifier is confusing. 650, 350, 950, etc. are all specific to the model Reader they are.
