Consumer Reports: Nook Beats The Kindle

For the oft asked question of librarians . . . which e-reader should I buy? For a couple of days the winner is:

Consumer Reports: Nook Beats The Kindle

“Here’s some huge news in the e-reader wars.

“For the first time, Consumer Reports has ranked the Nook above the Kindle.

The new Nook Simple Touch, which launched this month, has an E-Ink display with touch input. It doesn’t rely on a physical keyboard like the Kindle, and has better battery life and page turn rate.

The caveat: The Nook only beat the current Kindle by one point in Consumer Reports’ rankings. It beat other Kindles by a margin of four or five points.

Amazon will likely release an updated Kindle this year, along with two rumored tablets, so we doubt Nook’s lead will last long.”
