Nook also "Lends" out books compared to DRM hell 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.
Yeah, I think we're in the same boat.

I reread my post. I didn't mean the only thing the nook had that the Kindle didn't I just meant the only thing B&N could be perceived about being misleading. Of course, it was only after they made the chart that PDF support was fixed. So they just haven't updated it.

I'm going to have to do some digging tomorrow about the Asus.
