Hands On With The Nook Software Upgrade

After dinner, I stopped by Barnes and Noble to demo a newly upgraded Nook.  I’ll list my thoughts in bullet order.

  • The device feels heavy for a 7 inch tablet
  • The employees are pushing it heavily
  • The touch UI is not near as responsive as the iPad.  On the browser, I could not even click a link off Google
  • I’d rather have a Kindle or and iPad.  A Kindle is a better e-reader and an iPad is a better tablet.  The Nook is having an identity crisis.
