  • 1. 5 Reasons the All-New Nook is the Best Dedicated Ebook ReaderWritten by batteryfast.comSaturday, 02 July 2011 08:07 -5 Reasons the All-New Nook is the Best Dedicated Ebook Reader95% of my reading is now done on ebook readers and after using them for several years,starting with the Sony Reader, then a couple of Kindles, and a couple of Nooks, I have nowfound the ultimate ebook reader in the new Barnes & Noble Nook. I bought my Nook 1st Editionin 2009 and still use it every now and then. Back in early 2009 I wrotewhy ebooks were best forreading and now a couple years later after trying to read on the iPad, big screen smartphones,and other connected devices I have decided that nothing can beat a dedicated ebook devicewith eInk and limited connectivity for the near-book experience.I read ebooks on my iPad and HTC Flyer, but notifications, the urge to check email or browsethe web, and other distractions take away from the book experience. My eyes are not reallybothered by color displays, but after reading ebooks on my new Nook the past couple of weeksthere really is nothing that can beat eInk for reading. 1/5
  • 2. 5 Reasons the All-New Nook is the Best Dedicated Ebook ReaderWritten by batteryfast.comSaturday, 02 July 2011 08:07 -In my opinion, the all-new Nook, also referred to as the Simple Touch Reader, offers the BESTebook experience through the same size screen as others, the best eInk technology, anamazingly long battery life, support for standard ebook formats, access to a bookstore with over2 million titles, small form factor without a keyboard or other unnecessary extras, functionaltouch screen, and software optimized for the reading experience. It is available for a veryreasonable $139 and if you are an ebook fan then this is THE ebook reader to purchase.I also took a few product photos that you can find in my image gallery where I compare the newNook with the 1st Edition Nook. I also captured a video below of the Nook in action and includedmy top 5 reasons why I think it is the best current dedicated ebook reader.5 reasons the all-new Nook is the best ebook readerEach of us has our own personal preferences and I can’t tell you that any device is the very bestfor all of us. However, I sincerely believe there are several reasons that the all-new Nook is thebest and offer the following 5 reasons for you to consider. Reason 1: Form factorBefore this current Nook, my favorite ebook reader, in terms of form factor, was the SonyReader 505. While the Kindle has a great ecosystem and has many strengths, I rarely everused the QWERTY keyboard and found that having a hardware one that was always presentand taking up valuable real estate was a major waste of space. The original Nook that I still ownhas a color touchscreen band at the bottom so there are reasons for using it, but it was a bitclunky and I often could be found tapping on the eInk display rather than the color band.The all-new Nook has the same display size as the other ebook readers at 6 inches, yet there isnothing else to the device but a small bezel around the display so you can hold it in your hand.It seems a bit chunky, but is the same width as the first generation Nook and the shortness of itmakes it seem a bit wide.The Nook is also covered on the front bezel and complete back with soft touch material so it iseasy to hold and presents you with a surface that is not slippery. It also only weighs 7.48ounces and compared to the newest Kindle (8.5 ounces), Kobo Reader (7.8 ounces), and NookColor (15.8 ounces) it is the lightest currently available. 2/5
  • 3. 5 Reasons the All-New Nook is the Best Dedicated Ebook ReaderWritten by batteryfast.comSaturday, 02 July 2011 08:07 - Reason 2: Touchscreen interfaceI tried touchscreen Sony Reader devices in the past and Sony did get better every generationso that the latest PRS-650 Touch Edition used the same infrared technology that we see on theNook. However, their previous strategy was to place a touchscreen layer on top of the eInkdisplay and thus they were always taking something away from the eInk reading experience. Ibelieve that the eInk display is one of the most important aspects of device because without acrystal clear display you won’t enjoy your reading experience. The upcoming Kobo Touch alsooffers an infrared touchscreen display so that your finger position is picked up by IR sensorsembedded around the sides of the Nook bezel.When I heard it was based on infrared I thought I would see lots of deadspots and lag, but sofar I am amazed by the responsiveness of the display and if I didn’t know that it was powered byIR I would swear that the actual display had a touchscreen layer on top of it.The touchscreen user interface feels very natural and swiping or tapping on the display to turnpages is intuitive. The pop-up QWERTY keyboard works well too. Reason 3: eInk displayThe all-new Nook uses the latest Pearl eInk technology and the 6-inch 800×600 display looksfantastic. The contrast and clarity is amazing and I am able to even easily read books in lowlight and direct sunlight conditions.Barnes & Noble has a new functionality, called Fast Page, where page turns are nearinstantaneous and you will only see page refreshes every 6 pages. The page turns are so fastthat reading is completely unencumbered on the new Nook. Reason 4:  Battery lifeI purchased my new Nook a month ago and charged it as soon as it arrived, but haven’t put iton a charger since then and still have 25%  battery life left. I have finished half of Tom Clancy’sDead or Alive and spent time creating notes, adding bookmarks, putting in highlights, andbrowsing the store. I did have WiFi off for the majority of the time, since you only need it forshopping or for delivery of your daily newspaper selection. 3/5

Itis so refreshing to have an ebook reader where I never have to even think about charging thebattery and can just focus on reading books. Reason 5: ContentThere are over 2 million titles in the Barnes & Noble ebookstore, compared to the 950,000 titlesin the Amazon ebookstore. In addition, you can transfer over DRM and non-DRM EPUB filesthrough a USB connection or Adobe Digital Editions. This functionality let me bring over all ofthe books in my Sony Reader library and also check out ebooks from my local public library.The original Nook let ebook readers who had books from Peanut Press read them on thedevice, but PDB formats are no longer supported. For those enthusiasts who still own thesebooks I am sure they can figure out how to use Calibre to get these titles on their new devicetoo.Other Business News: - Acer as07b41 battery - dell vostro 1500 battery - Dell d630 battery - Toshiba pa3534u-1brs batteryCloudTag: new Nook , best dedicated , ebook reader , Acer as07b41 laptop battery ,  dell vostro 1500 laptop battery,  4/5
