Nook Tablet's Touchscreen

Could someone who's handled both the Nook Color and the Nook Tablet comment on the sensitivity of the touchscreen, especially with regard to the accruacy along the 1cm of the edges...?

Thanks in advance.

The tablet is definitively better; the NC is actually terrible when it comes to the corners.

Could you draw straight lines along the edge zones on the NT...? That's something I'm unable to do on the NC.

I know with the nature of capacitive screens straight lines are just not quite possible, at least with a finger or those styli available on the market. Even then drawing a straight line along the edge of the NC resulted a significantly more jiggled line than the one drew in the middle of the screen.

Perhaps you can use an app like Touch Test on the Market (https://market.android.com/details?i...ouchtest&hl=en)

Thanks.

I tried that app. It works fine along the edges and i can draw fairly straight lines with my finger. But, if you are concerned about the touch interface, I would suggest you go to a store and play with one.
