Reading Is Your Favorite Hobby. We've Got You Covered.
This article was written by David Prulhiere.
E-readers have gained immense popularity in the last few years and there are many manufacturers of them now. But the Nook vs Kindle fight is the top billing, since they are the two most popular.
In this article, we are going to cover a couple of features that will hopefully help you make your decision on which one is right for you.
Let me start by saying there are many models made by both Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook. The features are drastically different between them, and which one you want needs to be broken down a little. In this article, we are going to cover some details of the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire.
The down side is that you leave the e-ink technology behind. This is an easy on the eyes feature that many have come to love in an e-reader. Whether it is in bright sunlight or in an airplane, the non-color versions of the Nook or Kindle were great for reading books. But it was limited to just that.
If you forego the color screens, you can get a Kindle or a Nook for under one hundred dollars. But if you choose the color Kindle Fire, the price will be around two hundred. The Nook Color runs around two hundred and fifty dollars. The fact is, you are going to double the cost to add color. But it is well worth it if you are trying to get an affordable tablet also.
Although not technically tablets, the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire both low you to play apps and games. You can even play movies and listen to music. They are much more than just and e-reader and in my opinion the cost is justified.
Based on the price and the features available, you can see the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire move you more into the arena of the tablet as opposed to an e-reader. Other tablets that you may be familiar with are the IPads. But these color e-readers are much less expensive, offering many of the features of the higher priced tablets for about a quarter of the price.
The Nook vs Kindle battle will continue for a long time, and the battle will be a bit like the battle between Ford and Chevy. My guess is that whichever one you choose, you will love. And the other one will be, well, the other one. The truth is, they are very comparable, and a good or bad experience will determine which one is your favorite.
