When i browse CNET, i find an aritcle talking about the features of Nook tablet. Pretty good. Maybe you just hesitate whether to buy this tablet. Just excerpt some paragraphs about the two features. Hope you can find something useful.
As an e-reader
Let’s put it this way: when shooting the video for the Nook Tablet, I almost forgot to show off the e-reader features. Nook Tablet users could, as absurd as it sounds, make book reading a distant priority, what with all the video, music, gaming, and magazine reading this tablet can handle.
The Nook e-reading software is functional, but not spectacular. Fonts and font sizes–as well as margins and line spacing–can be easily adjusted, offering plenty of flexibility. Still, page turns aren’t silky smooth like they are in Apple’s iBooks app, although they are functionally fast. Book lovers might still prefer an e-ink choice like the Simple Touch over this bright LCD display, but for the extra features the Nook Tablet offers, it’s a worthy compromise. The IPS display is bright and crisp–better than on the original Nook Color–and looks as least as good as an Apple iPad’s display.
