In response to the success of Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble has struck back with “Nook,” its own take on the e-book reader. If early sales are any indication, Nook is going to provide Kindle with some serious competition, as Nook orders for the holidays have already reached capacity. Are we looking at the future here?
What’s so Great About Nook?
For one, Nook comes with easy access to over a million titles that you can browse from the Barnes and Noble eBookstore. You can even sample any book for free and download it instantly, often for less than ten bucks. You can get magazines and newspapers almost instantly through wireless download too. For another, many people prefer the graphic E Ink display of Nook, where text on the full color, 16 level grayscale touch screen appears just as clear as a printed page. You can also enjoy features such as five different font sizes, bookmarking, highlighting and note-taking.
You can store more books on Nook than you can probably ever read. Nook’s 2GB internal storage capacity can accommodate 1500 eBooks. If that’s not enough, you can add a Micro SD card which will give you enough space for over 1700 titles, including music, pictures and even PDFs.
