Wonderful way to read
When I first saw the new Simple touch Nook being offered on the B&N website I knew I had to have it. I have the 1st generation Nook and I love it, but I was always envious of my friends NookColor's touchscreen. Now, I didn't want all the bells and whistles that the NookColor or the 1st Gen Nook has, I just wanted a simple eReader and I got that and more.
Nicely priced ePub-based e-book reader
Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight is a darn fine e-book reader. But for the fact that the Kobo Glo delivers the same features for £10 less, I'd recommend the Nook unequivocally. The B&N offering is certainly better - and better value - than the Kindle Touch, but that's of little concern to anyone already tied into the Amazon ecosystem.
Great E Ink display with fast page flipping
A top-notch touchscreen reader. Experts call the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch's display just a hair less impressive than the Amazon Kindle's, but it's still crisp, clear and detailed, with fast page turns and refreshes. The streamlined interface also shines, and the battery life is rated for a whopping two months.
Excellent Little Device
I purchased two units directly from Barnes and Noble, one for me, and one for my sister for Christmas. It's a great device and I like it a lot. I like to read technical and scientific English language PDFs and it works well for the documents I've read so far. The web browser is very usable, and the color display is absolutely gorgeous. In book reading mode, the gestures work well and reading over extended periods of time is quite comfortable.
Built-in Wi-Fi, web browser
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color lands halfway between an e-book reader and a tablet computer -- and experts say it's a good compromise. Its main claim to fame is its 7-inch, backlit color touch screen, which testers say displays text a little more crisply and readably than the 9.7-inch Apple iPad 2 (*Est. $400 and up) , though the latest Apple tablet computer -- the new iPad (*Est. $500 and up) -- is equipped with a high-resolution Retina display that is flooring reviewers with its ability to...
Excellent display and build quality
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color may not be the first e-reader with a full color touchscreen, but it's definitely the best color e-reader option available on the market today. Its interface is quite polished for a first run, and that combined with B&N's massive library of books and the excellent color touchscreen display, makes the Nook Color a serious desirable e-reading device.
Reading text is totally comfortable
Caught between two worlds, the Nook Color is an undeniably interesting, if somewhat conflicted device. It's not quite a tablet, but it's more than a simple ebook reader. It can do things that an e-ink reader simply can't even if it doesn't always excel at them but it's nearly as cheap at $250.
Easy to use
I purchased this eReader on a whim. I knew nothing about it, but when I found it at a perfect price I could not say no to I scooped it up. At first I was worried I may have been taken to the cleaners after paying $40 for mine. Admittedly, this company does not promote the product that well. I thought I heard of all the eReaders and saw almost all of them in my research for the perfect one. However, I went home and did a search on the eReader and found out I got it for a steal.
Great little reader with some unexpected surprises
If you want a device that is portable and only for reading this is perfect. If you like news and magazine then with calibre it is simple the best thing on the market. However, if you want more options, like music or downloading via 3G than Kindle is the way to go (but you'll never ever get a free newspaper or magazine!).
