The Nook Simple Touch Reader can rest comfortably in your hand for hours on end. It's noticeably lighter than the Kindle, and the contoured back coupled with the rubberized matte finish gives you a good grip. More hands-on impressions ahead:
Barnes and Noble's new, second-gen Nook isn't a bigger, iPad-sized device. Nor is it a hybrid reader with dual, E-Ink and LCD screens. Instead, it's a small, cheap E-Reader...with a touchscreen and a battery that lasts TWO MONTHS on a single charge. Updating live...
If you were thinking about grabbing the Nook for the holidays, you had better make up your mind soon. High demand for the e-reader is pushing the second wave of pre-orders into the first week of December.
