I'm with you, though, if I could see the Asus I could make up my mind. But then if I wait for Asus I'll see something else and wait and keep waiting. I'm thinking I should just go with it. Use it for a year or two and then survey the field.

Are you siding more nook or more Kindle 2 at the moment?
actually the Nook also has WiFi,memory expansion and a replaceable battery over the Kindle line. If the battery goes bad you can fix it with the Nook.

Nook also "Lends" out books compared to DRM with the kindle.


Kindle has browser capability and text to speech. I don't care about the text to speech but even the limited/throttled browsing of the kindle is appealing.

but .... i hear that even after the latest firmware the Nook is still kind of sluggish with it's clicks and refreshing.


dammit i wish i could squish the 2 together and get the best of both.


i'm leaning slightly to the Kindle because of the responsiveness but in reality i'm going to do my best to wait until April to see the Asus.

35 days and counting .....
