Barnes & Noble Nook Color Tablet eBook Reader Review
The Barnes & Noble NOOKColor costs $249, but you get quite a lot for your pennies.
Device & Specs
The Sony Reader Daily uses an eInk screen, which means that it can only display black and white. By contrast, the Nook Color uses an LCD screen that offers full color display. While that might sound like a one-sided battle, both types have their advantages. The eInk screen of the Sony Reader can be used in any light from near darkness to high noon in the desert: the text will still be visible on the screen. The LCD screen of the Nook Color is only usable in low to moderate light: anything higher drowns out the backlight of the screen and renders it unreadable.
Both readers include basic web browsers, but the Nook Color one is superior because the screen is better suited to showing web pages.
