Kindle Touch Vs Nook Touch
Are you Searching for E- book Reader? Which is the best cheapest E-book reader? Well, there are two top e-book readers in e-book reader market. One is Amazon Kindle Touch and other is Nook Touch. These both e-book readers are the best and are with same price tag $99. Which one is the best to purchase? Here's the comparison between Amazon Kindle Touch and Nook Touch.
Weight and Size
Weight and Size really matters before purchasing the product. If your E-book reader is big, you just can't take it out and read when ever you want. It should fit in your hands and also your pocket, so you can carry it anywhere. Lightest and the smallest product is better.
Amazon Kindle Touch weighs 7.5 ounces and 6.8" x 4.7" in Size which is just 0.02 ounces more in weight than Nook Touch. Nook Touch weighs 7.48 ounces and 6.5" x 5.0"in Size which is just 0.3" wider than the Amazom Kindle Touch.However, there is no much difference in size.
Both Kindle Touch and Nook Touch have advanced E Ink touchscreens. The E Ink screens have low glare, which is designed for clearer and sharper texts. You don't face any glare problems like LCD screens while reading under the sunlight. These E Ink screens make texts and pages sharper and clearer for reading.
Amazon Kindle Touch comes with 6" advanced E Ink multi-touch display which is optimized with font technology. It has 600 x 800 pixel resolution and 16-level grayscale. Nook Touch also comes with same size, features and resolution but you will find one difference between Kindle display and Nook display and that is multi- touch display feature in Kindle.
Before buying, you need to think about Internet Usage, W'der you access Internet through 3G on your cellular network or through WiFi hot spots. Amazon Kindle offer a 3G version with a WiFi which costs $149.00. But you will get Kindle Touch WiFI with no 3G at $99.00 only. I think you need 3G version only if you want to download books and other stuff through a cellular network. If you are a traveller, WiFI is the best option for you. You can download the books and other stuff at public WiFI hot spots and leave.
Here, both Amazon Kindle and Nook Touch supports public and private WiFi hotspots or networks.Nook Touch offer free Wi-Fi in all Barnes & Noble stores and 24,000 AT&T hotspots all over the country.
Memory is worth considering while choosing the product. Amazon Kindle Touch has 4GB Memory on device which holds up to 3,000 books and offers free cloud storage for all Amazon content. You really never have to worry about space. But, when it comes to memory in Nook Touch , it offers only 2GB internal memory which holds up to 1,000 books. Also, you can expand up to 32GB memory with Micro SD cards. Impressive !!
You have no need to purchase the micro SD card for that extra 32GB memory. 1,000 books are really huge. Compare to both products, my advice is to purchase Kindle because it offers 4 GB Memory with free cloud storage.
In Amazon Kindle , a single charge lasts up to 2 months with half-hour daily reading by putting Wi-FI OFF. But it all depends on usage. If you put Wi-FI ON all the time, battery lasts only for 5-6 weeks. The Nook touch is much better when you compare with Kindle. Nook has a better battery life which lasts up to 2 months with 1 hour daily reading by putting Wi-Fi off.
If battery life is your first priority, Go for Nook Touch. Nook Touch gives an extra half-hour daily reading compare to Amazon Kindle.
