Super in-depth review: Barnes and Noble Nook- now they've gotten it right
      #36010 - 02/15/10 08:42 PM

When Barnes and Noble introduced the nook in early December 2009, it didn't go well. The eBook reader was slow and quirky and many pre-orders never arrived for the holidays. Fast forward a few months to mid-February 2010 and the nook is just now readily available online and in Barnes and Noble stores. Better yet, firmware updates have transformed it from trash to beloved trinket.

The nook features a dual screen design with a 6" eInk display and a capacitive color touch screen. It works with ePUB books, eReader PDB books and PDF books, making it more versatile than the Kindle. The nook has both 3G and WiFi for book shopping directly on the device and a microSD card slot. This review includes a video review and comparisons with the Kindle 2 and Sony Reader Daily Edition.
