Amazon Kindle eReader Review
An impressive e-reader in its own right, at a price that undercuts the rest of the market.
Device & Specs
Differences between brand and hardware aside, both tablets are very similar in dimension and weight (the Nook is a little clunkier), but the big difference is that the Nook has physical page turn buttons where the Amazon Kindle Touch has none.
Both eReaders have similarly sized IR grid touchscreens and refresh rates. There isn't much difference between each eInk screen. Both produce a similarly crisp image that can be seen in a huge range of lighting conditions.
Both devices have similarly amazing battery life, and neither will need to be recharged within a span of 24 hours, no matter how much you might try to destroy the battery life.
As eReaders, you don't get much more similar than these two units, but where the Amazon Kindle Touch really shines is in the value. Not only do you have access to the huge library of eBooks in the Amazon eBook store, but you also can borrow books from your local library or even lend a book to another Kindle owner. All of this for less than the cost of a Nook Touch.
