Nook – The New eBook Reader from Barnes and Noble’s

Barnes and Noble’s just released their latest product, Nook. It’s almost similar like Amazon.com’s Kindle, but this time, Nook offers more features than Kindle.

Some features that Nook offers:

  • Compact size and paper-like display
  • Color touch-screen at the bottom portion of the device. Used for navigation and settings
  • Wireless connection enabled (Wi-fi and 3G)
  • Picture and audio supported device (Internal memory has 2Gb, and it’s expandable using MicroSD up to 16Gb)
  • Ability to lend eBooks to friends and buy new eBooks on the fly.

Here’s the preview of Nook – Barnes and Noble’s eBook Reader:

It’s pretty neat, right? It’s now priced at $259, which is the same as Amazon.com’s Kindle.

What do you think about this new device. I am the kind of person who likes to touch the actual paper and flip through them when I read something, so I’m not a big fan of eBook. But after watching the video, hmmm…..let me think again. This device looks pretty close like a real paper, with its eInk and big size screen, so I might try it someday. Do you like reading PDF book or eBook? Maybe you’ll like Nook better than Kindle. I don’t know…. Any opinion regarding this?

  • Wait for version 2 of anything, right?

    • You are right. Plus, the price is still pretty high now for a 2Gb device. I can see its future capability though, like HTML browsing and digital picture frame. We'll have to see, maybe they will implement these two features in version 2.
