Ok now I’m really jealous. I bought the 2nd generation of the first Nook with the color display at the bottom. Then a few months later they came out with the Nook Color and now this.
This Nook seems a lot cooler than my Nook because it is e-ink that is touch screen with a battery life of 2 months. My nook is supposed to be 2 weeks but I’m lucky if I get 1 week. This new Nook is cheaper at
$139, mine was $150 and the Nook color was a whopping $250 which is also what the first gen of the original Nook was so if you waited this long then good for you, you saved a buttload of money.
Edit: The price went down to $99. They also have the Simple Touch with GlowLight for $119.
If only I had waited a little bit longer. But that’s ok, I’m very happy with my Nook so I will just wait for it to burn out and hopefully by that time when they come out with their 10th generation of Nook it will be $25 so I can buy as many as I need lol.
The newer features that this Nook has that mine doesn’t which really makes me jealous are the NOOK Friends and the Borrow Library Books feature. Although, that really doesn’t affect me anyway because your local library has to have that feature available which ours doesn’t so it doesn’t matter for me anyway. My Nook doesn’t have the Nook Friends feature which upsets my friend Sue because she is unable to add me to her friends list for some reason. All I can do is add her as a contact but I have yet to use the lend feature anyway.
Check out the Nook Color and the newer Nook Simple Touch at the Barnes and Noble Nook website for all of the other dimensions and features.
