How does Barnes & Noble respond to Amazon's latest tablets?
details
Amazon's Kindle Fire now seems to be a better buy (both hardware and price) than the Nook Color. It seems to be a pretty aggressive price point.
How will Barnes & Noble respond? They've been pretty aggressive releasing the Nook Color and Nook Simple Touch. The Nook Color is nearly a year old at this point as well -- so we're about due for a new tablet from them. One would think they knew Amazon would get into this market as well.
Does this signal the beginning of the end, or is the tablet war...

Viewsonic gTablet at $350, or Nookcolor at $250?
details
A local electronics shop is offering the Viewsonic tablet for $350, which is certainly a good enough price to make it worth looking at, however, I certainly have no qualms about rooting a Nook and installing Cyanogen on there. My primary use will be reading PDF files, and many of those PDF files are going to consist of scanned images as opposed to text. 3G isn't important, as I can use my phone as a hotspot. So which should it be?

Has anyone gotten the sync to work reliably between devices? My setup currently is the original nook and iPhone app.
details
For some reason the page I am currently on does not seem to be sent to the server at any particular time on either device. Sometimes I can coax it into doing this by refreshing my library on each device, but if I just put the device down or close the app it does not send my current page to the server. Has anyone else experienced this? I do have the book setup for syncing on the nook itself and it works very infrequently. I am debating switching to a Kindle just for the Whispersync which seems...

It seems that a flurry of Kindle 3 reviews are coming out on various blogs
details
Just curious if anyone out there has had an opportunity to compare side-by-side the Kindle 3 screen to the Nook screen. Most of the reviews I have read online stated the Nook had slightly better contrast than the Kindle 2. Being that the Kindle 3 has "50%" more contrast than the Kindle 2, I am wondering how that translates compared to the Nook. A noticeable difference?

Kindle 2 or Nook 3G
details
I want to get an eReader. I just don't know which one to purchase. They both look nice and have their respective features. I'm going on a trip so no wi-fi, and I want internet access. The only way would would be to use the Kindle with 3G. I want to get the device with the most non-fiction books like history.

I just got my Nook a couple of days ago, so I haven't really explored everything it can do just yet.
details
I know it runs Android, and it has games, and a browser, and some other features, all with certain limits. But I also have heard that there is a hacking scene with the Nook, with homebrew apps for it and such. Has anybody had any experience with hacking their Nook that can say to weather it's worth doing or not? Or what kind of features I can get from doing so? I'd hope that there is a lot of neat stuff people can do, given that it's based on Android and has 3g built in.

Is last page read supposed to sync between devices?
details
I have been looking for a definitive answer on this issue. The Kindle 2 has Whispersync, where the device syncs to the last page read in teh book you are currently reading between devices. Does anyone know if this functionality is supposed to be coming in the nook? I have seen conflicting answers. Some people seem to point to the statement that "books will sync between devices" however all that I find that to mean is that my B&N online library is synced, but not the location I am...

Android + Mini USB? Bring on the mods and hacks!
details
Seriously, this is yet another exciting possibility about this eBook reader. With the potential ability to hack Android, a mini USB port, and a Micro SD slot, is it possible we could see future, home-brew support for more document formats besides PDF (such at DOC, or even TXT?). In my opinion, this eBook reader is one of the most exciting yet released.
