Welcome back to another beloved installment of the Good e-Reader Video Comparison Series! Today we are looking at the e-Reader that started the entire glowing e-ink revolution, the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight. Juxtaposing this is the latest Amazon Kindle PaperWhite, which expands on the technology.
In this video we document the hardware and software elements that make both of these devices unique. The Kindle Paperwhite has a faster processor and more RAM then their counterparts. It also really refines the glowlight feature and makes light emit from the bottom of it, where the Nook does it from the top. Many people wonder how reading in complete darkness performs. My friends, we GIVE this to you in spades! We compare EPUB and PDF documents and show you all the features to augment your reading experience. Finally, we outline our thoughts and opinions on the Paperwhite and Nook Glow.
