The Nook is interesting. It costs a lot more than a Kindle, but has a color display and touchscreen. It costs a lot less than an iPad, but is smaller and the software isn’t as nice. It’s not just in between the Kindle and iPad price-wise, either. The Kindle is a reader. The iPad is a tablet computer. The Nook Color sounds like it’s primarily a reader, but with its Android foundation and color touchscreen, it’s far more of a general-purpose device than the Kindle.
