Good article comparing Nook and Kindle

Here is an interesting comparison between Kindle 3 and Nook touch. He goes into some pretty obscure features that many users don't discover until after they have used the readers for a while. It does a good job summarizing the features B&N removed and a good link showing the contrast comparison.

Nook lovers, please send your comments to the author. I don't want to hear from you.

I love the form factor of the Nook Touch; but alas, it has no audio player. Hope the new Kindle copies it.

They do. I've had great CS with Amazon and Kindle, but lousy CS with Audible.

I want them to revisit this prizefight after the Kindle Touch is released.

so on a site like this what stops a Kindle fan or even Amazon employees etc from trolling in and making up their own negative experience?

With trolling and astroturfing running so rampant on forum's, comment sections and product reviews, the whole system is quickly becoming a sham. It really is.

just reading half of the comments and they are just complet BS. One person said he has tried for days and cant get through to BN. Hmmm that's funny just for giggles I just called and got through to a live person with 1 min.


This site is absolutley worthless.

I'm sure they will but until then this is what is available to consumers now.

And I'm sure a nook color 2 is in the works as well.

Did you see this prizefight between the Clip+ vs nano 6G? The Clip+ made applesauce out of the nano with a clean sweep.

I still think Amazon has it's eyes set on taking down the NC with one of its tablets. A Kindle Color vs Nook Color 2 would be a great prizefight.
