    Which to get? Wait for Kindle Fire or get my Nook Tablet now?

    Well, I'm getting the Fire, even though the Nook looks like a nice device (I used to own a rooted Nook Color, and was fond of it). Why? -Fire has unlimited cloud storage of Amazon content plus limited free storage for non-Amazon content (Does Nook's cloud store non-Nook content, even for a...

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    The 3G w/o contract is free in the USA, for general browsing and downloading content. But I think I recall hearing about an extra charge per book when using it overseas.

    Can you have Amazon App store - on same device - as Android market?

    I've had both on my NC since the day the Amazon AppStore became available. No problems.

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    1.Kindle plays MP3s, Audible books, and books that have text-to-speech enabled. And the speakers aren't bad. 2. Yes, the 3G is supported outside the USA. I'm not sure if there are extra charges in other countries.

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    Heh. But with the Kindle I don't have to plan ahead. :)Seriously, I've found myself wifi-less in nice hotels, parks, beaches, parking lots, restaurants, on planes awaiting takeoff--and in my own home when the power is out. The free 3G comes in handy, then. So does the--admittedly terrible--browser.

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    WiFi works fine--when it's available. :) In the past three years, I've been in many situations where it hasn't been. :)

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    Yeah, I like the touchscreen in the new nook a lot, and it's pretty responsive. I'm hoping amazon plays copycat on that in the next gen of Kindles. But I'm not willing to give up the audio, the 3G, etc...and I have a big Kindle library already. :)

    Nook is best dedicated ebook reader

    Hmmmm. Well, the author of the article may 'applaud' the lack of audio, 3G, a web browser, no landscape options, but the fact is that those are features you get in the Kindle that dispute the 'best' label of the new Nook. Also, no overseas support, an official anti-refund policy on books, and...

    Market missing after ROM upgrade

    I installed 7.1 today, and no problems with the Market app. When you install using rom manager, it has an option to include google apps or not.

    Barnes & Noble Beats Amazon To The Android App Punch, But Kindle Will Likely Prevail

    I love my kindle. And latest estimates are that it'll sell 17 million devices this year. The new nook is nice for sure, but lacks all sorts of features I want in an e-ink reader: audio, screen rotation, 3G. I've no doubt a touchscreen kindle is coming; I can wait, as it's a great device as is...

    What tablet to recommend for an older traveler

    I'm curious why an iPad is out, at any price.Anyway, if you have time to wait, vizio is releasing a tablet in July that has an 8 inch screen, the same 4x3 ratio as the iPad (which I do like better than the widescreen format of most android tablets), and its price starts at $349. But I believe...

    If you were going to buy a 10" tablet, which would you get?

    I'm going to look at the galaxy tab 8.9 inch when it's released...it might be just the right compromise in size.

    If you were going to buy a 10" tablet, which would you get?

    With the Kindle 3, Amazon kept mum until a month before its release, so August/September fits with that. In fact, the tablet rumors have seemed very 'leaky' for Amazon. I hope they're true; I love my Kindle and am inclined to take a very close look at an Amazon -branded tablet. I hope it's...
