Summary: I just picked one of this up around Thanksgiving 2010 and compared it directly to the Color Nook and iPad for the primary purpose I will be using it for-reading books. I performs very similarly to the Color Nook, but is $100 less, so therefore has better value for the money in my opinion. The iPad offers the best funtionality and flexibility of the group, but it is limited by the lack of flash, usb port, etc. and is very heavy and cumbersome. Therfore for about 1/4th of the price I am quite happy with the Pandigital Novel. It has a clear, crisp screen, I can download books easily and turn pages as well as the Nook. Does anyone know how I can configue this so I can download and read Kindle books as well???
It's certainly not perfect, but I got it to access WI-Fi the first try out of the box and was reading a new book I downloaded seconds later. Not sure why others are panning the technology. If you want a nice color e-reader at great value, I'd recommend it.
