Kindle versus Nook : Which one should you get

I have personally used both Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. My personal experience is that to read books I slightly prefer Kindle over Nook. This is because the Nook’s touch screen based navigation does not work as well ad Amazon’s button based navigation. The E-ink screen technology for both Kindle and Nook were similar until Kindle came up with Generation 3 device. Kindle 3 the screen technology is better than Nook screen technology. Other factor in favor of Kindle is the strength and might of Amazon and availability of wider book selection compared to Barnes & Noble. So for this holiday season I would recommend Kindle 3 over Nook (black and White).

Here is the trend map of world-wide interest in these two devices over time which suggests similar trend of Kindle dominating over Nook.

3 Pros and Cons: iPad vs. Kindle for book reading

I am only taking about the reading experience here.

3 Pros for book reading on Kindle compared to iPad:
1. Kindle can be read outside even under bright sunlight
2. Kindle does not heat up even after prolonged use
3. Kindle has longer battery life

3 Cons:
1. Can not read Kindle in the dark
2. No color on kindle
3. No touch screen on kindle

Off course iPad is a device for more than just book reading.
But for a serious book reader Kindle is clearly a better device for book reading,
especially due to no heating up and outside reading advantage.

Here is shiny new ad from Amazon highlighting the outside readability aspect.
