So i think it is time for an e-reader, but the big question is which one?
Do I go with the B&N Nook, or Amazon Kindle touch?
I hear the Nook has a batter display and is more responsive but I feel the Kindle has a better industry backing.
I like e-ink, and if you ask me this is still the best reader out there. the Kindle 3 is nice but its more of a status Icon. This clearly has a much better community and library of free books.I just got a Blue battery cover and now my Nook is unique.
but the computers do not see the nook for sideloading. ADE also does not see it. Have used a non B&N cable for 11 months with no problem and both the non and the white B&N cable malfunction. Did a factory reset and was O.K. for a few days then does not operate properly again.
This was immediately gone when I realized that it was an LCD screen. What I'm wanting to know is people's opinions on e-ink vs and LCD screen and would you go with the color screen of the Nook over grayscale e-ink of the Kindle. Personally I think that the Kindle would be much better for extended reading. That is why I decided to go with a dedicated device for reading over the iPad.
I also don't want to be locked into one E-book store, what formats do either of these support?
I would like to carry hundreds of IBM Redbooks in my laptop bag, but the nook does not support downloading PDFs via the browser, and does a horrible job rendering pages. Since Redbooks typically feature many tables and screenshots, the layout needs to remain true, and I would be happy using pinch to zoom in and out of screenshots and other fixed-width items. I just can't justify this purchase to meet my specific needs. Which is unfortunate because I *really* want to need it!
shocked to discover the books don't sync (Amazon calls it "Whispersync") between devices. I wanted to like this device, but it is now headed to the gadget graveyard. I just ordered one of the new Kindle WiFi's, because Whispersync is essential. What I like about eBooks is that I can read them on the dedicated reader (Nook, Kindle, whatever), then read a bit on your iPhone when you're standing in line or something, then read a bit on your Mac/PC when you're tired of...
What is the better eBook reader between the Kindle 2 and Nook 3G that has the following features: books about history and politics, easy interface, good performance (fast), best feature set.
if you did spend the card like i did, they'll still give you 10 dollars. not bad.
Plus, we can go straight to a page number now and display text in an extra extra large font.
The latest update allowed me to start browsing the web (albeit in a limited form) while having my coffee in the morning without firing up my computer.
