simpletouch and paperwhite
Yesterday, my nook simpletouch with glow light had a friend over for a playdate. My technoguru friend, Kathy Schrock, wanted to compare her new Kindle Paperwhite 3G with my nook. Both of us eRead and have for many years! We both have a Rocket Ebook that still works! (wow)
We compared screen clarity, ease of use and weight. Both passed with flying colors! She won in the category of borrowing books with Amazon Prime membership because even though I have an Amazon Prime membership I can't borrow books because I don't own the actual device. (Boo!)
I suspect her battery life might be better. I can't test that easily.
Both eReaders work as advertised in bright sunlight and in the dark. We both love ours. It's a tie.
She wanted to see mine so she can help others with using a nook and to have my opinion. (at least my opinion still counts)
We looked at each others cases. It really was a playdate. Yes, we giggled. I told her about Steve Robinson's books that even a non genealogist could love.
We both prefer using an eReader over using our much loved iPads for reading but I think that is because of reading in the dark and in the sunlight. That is better on both our devices.
