"overall sub par prodcut lacks alot of apps only 25,000."2.5 starson by JEFL
Pros: 1 million books to look from
Cons: sluggish interface- touch is sometimes not responsive.
limited customized OS version of android
it solely dedicates itself mainly 75% of time to reading, 15% apps and 10% to browsing.
web browser needs work a lot very slow compared to nexus 7
Summary: lets me first say I'm tech savvy person and have a lot of hands on experience with gadgets whether its smartphones or Open source stuff to computer OS, so let me say first the size is great the book content is great but the apps are very limited only over 25,000 apps, which is mainly games- kids and basic low ball apps. it has a sluggish performance overall. its almost like it shows its overpriced performance- web browser is suspect. i understand why its sluggish to begin with. its the term ereader- mainly has a performance to read books and with lite gaming and lite browsing. but if your going to compete with other touch os's this will fail tremendously due to lack of content and OS quality. they should just stick to the traditional ereader and just leave the touch screen OS behind. they could save alot of money by doing this and also many people buy a kindle anyways its more popular then the nook. i would strongly recommend a kobo reader or touch- it least it gets a full android app experience like the nexus 7 and 10 tablets. so overall i rate it less than the kindle with 2.5 stars. i do have to say i like the setup on this device better than the kindle fire in general. the processor is definitely a cheap dual core processor- this makes me very frustrated to say that this product is overpriced and will move on from nook and its apps in general. if you want books download the ios app or android app or just stick to the tradionalt ereader-paperwhite which B & N offers dont buy this touch screen ereader.no dont plan to i sold mine last week. i didn't like it at all esecially since i own apple and google products
