Welcome to another Good e-Reader comparison video! Today we take a look at two of the latest generation e-readers that will be vying for your attention this holiday season. The Barnes and Noble Nook Glowlight just came out last week and the Kindle Paperwhite 2 has been available for the last three weeks. We directly compare eBooks, magazines, newspapers, PDF Files and show you how the glowlight looks.
The Kindle Paperwhite 2 and Nook Glowlight both have comparable hardware specs on paper. They have six inch screens with 1024×768 for the resolution and both solely rely on the touchscreen to interact with content. The Kindle has a capacitive touchscreen, while the Nook has Neonode IR Touch. This gives the advantage to Amazon because you can pinch and zoom, while you cannot on the Nook. The Kindle has a 1GHZ processor whereas the Nook has 800 MHZ. When you take them both out of the box for the first time you have 2 GB of memory on each one to load in your own books and purchase content.
