"Nice e-reader with one drawback"3.5 starson by MsGerth
Pros: Ease of use
great for surfing the net
plays video and music
uses mini SDHC so you can take endless books and video with you
Cons: shorter battery life than Nook
Summary: This is an e-reader/media device. You can read, listen to music, surf the web and watch videos. It is great for travel as long as you don't mind keeping a charger with you. My nook classic could go a a week to 10 days without charging. I find the Nook color needs charging after 5 hours of reading vs Nook of about 10. It does more so that is understandable.
It is also easy to remove the mini-sd card on the Nook classic you had to remove the back panel to change the SD card. I have seen the new Nook and it is also easy access.
The only advantage I see of Kindle over Nook is availability of Text-To-Speech. I have a mild learning disorder and use TTS on my computer. I think this is a major mistake by Barnes and Noble. Hopefully as more android apps become available we will get access to the TTS options available on other android devices.
They are alienating people with learning disabilities by not allowing the Nook Color to have Text-to-Speech.
