Nook Color Vs Amazon Kindle: Which is better?

For those of you who are thinking of picking up the recently announced Nook Color, you are probably wondering what advantages it has over the market leader in the Amazon Kindle. Aside from being a fully colored e-book reader, what else does it offer you?

We’ve found a lengthy article for you to read which asks this very question. The Nook Color is not due to ship until November 17, and the Amazon Kindle is still a worthy rival despite it’s outdated appearance.

While the main advantage that the Nook has over the Kindle is obviously it’s color support, another telling factor in favor of the Kindle is that the Kindle will be able to perform well in direct sunlight thanks to it’s e-ink screen, whereas the LCD-based Nook Color may not – good screen quality is obviously a major requirement for all new e-book buyers.

If you are looking at battery life comparisons, then the Kindle is the clear winner again. TimesoftheInternet claims that the Kindle will offer thirty days of life, while the Nook Color will only offer eight hours of usage – a price to pay for Android OS perhaps?

Aside from everything, it will ultimately come down to price, and the Kindle is considered a bargain for $189 in the US. We are hearing that the Nook Color will retail for $249 which is also quite reasonable for the newest e-book reader on the market.

So which device wins? If you are looking for the best screen quality, reading conditions and battery life, then the Kindle still cannot be matched. However, if you’re looking to add that touch of style to your reading whilst on the move, then the Nook Color will definitely tempt you.

The full article which lists more advantages of both devices can be read over at TimesoftheInternet. Let us know if you have anything to share on this comparison.
