Little devices that are focused on making a big impact on the way you read books, read E-Book Readers. They are small enough to fit your pocket and large enough to carry the whole library. You have set your mind on getting yourself this sleek device but you are somewhat undecided about which way to go. With quite a few big names fighting for shelf-space, I would suggest you zero in on the Barnes and Noble Nook and you will not have to look further.
Designed with the consumer in mind, the Nook is the king of connectivity and content. Priced at $259, the Nook is the first electronic book-reader to be based on the Android platform. The E-Ink display gives the screen the look of a traditional book, with no glare or backlight. The 6 inch color multi-touch screen allows you to navigate content and browse books in a cover-flow style. This screen doubles up as a virtual keyboard.
Giving you the opportunity to go through a million titles, with a 2GB memory, it can hold up to 1500 e-books. This memory can be increased with the Micro SD expansion slot. You will no longer need an oversized backpack for all the books you need while traveling and you will never be caught without your favorite book. Nook has access to the online store of Barnes and Noble. Also while visiting this favorite store of yours, you can read entire e-books for free.
The feature which clinches the deal for the Nook is its ‘Lend Me’ capability. It has the local city library feature where you can lend purchased e-books to your friends for a period of two weeks. Your friend need not own a Nook; an iPhone or an iPod Touch using Barnes and Noble software application will suffice. We recommend to find other lenders at our E-Reader Forum This lending feature can be put to use only with the publisher’s approval and you will not be able to access it for those two weeks.
The Nook supports ePub and lets you download books from multiple vendors. Including 3G wireless connectivity is in the pipeline and this little device will also be able to absorb up to 16GB of internal memory.
The rave reviews of the Nook make it a winner. It sure is a gadget worth being excited about. Giving you a better reading experience, you will agree with me whole-heartedly when you treat yourself to one.
