Barnes and Noble's Simple Touch Nook is not a reinvention of the e-reader in any way. It's a refinement, and a very good one at that. Why It Matters: The Nook dispels the notion that all e-readers have to be long and slim like a tall novel, opting...

Западный рынок читалок уже третий год пребывает в состоянии паритета: он разделен между Sony , Amazon и Barnes & Noble , выпускающими однородные девайсы, отличающиеся ровно настолько, чтобы у покупателя была некоторая видимость выбора. Немного выбивался...

Beim ersten Antesten des Nook waren wir von der kompakten Größe, der intuitiven Bedienung, den vielen Anpassungsmöglichkeiten und der ansprechenden Haptik sehr angetan. Leider kann der Nook den sehr guten ersten Eindruck aber im täglichen Betrieb nicht...
