To me, that is a tablet computer with e-reader software, not a true e-reader. If you want that, get an iPad, or something similar.

Guess it just depends on what you use it for, I wanted my e-reader to just be an e-reader (granted, I bought it before the color came out, but I still would have made the same choice). Kevin's mom has the nook color and loves it as well.

Whichever fits your needs, I think both have their fans. The nook has a great OS, and I think all the bugs have been fixed, so pure brand wise, I prefer it over the kindle, mostly because the kindle is so proprietary (like apple) where you can only get books from amazon, and not public sources like the library.
