Another review suggesting the NookColor competes more directly with the Samsung Tab than the Kindle (or original Nook)
That’s surprising, because I wasn’t a fan of the original Nook, an agonizingly slow and buggy Kindle knock-off when it debuted a year ago. It’s improved since then, though it still hasn’t caught up to the Kindle.
By contrast, the Nook Color, with its bright backlit screen and touch interface, has beaten Amazon to the punch. Not to mention Sony Corp., which pioneered the e-reader but remains mired with a line of handsome yet overpriced monochrome devices.
