I have to be honest, the 3G web access thing bothers me. I understand that the 3G connection ought to be for browsing, buying, and downloading content from the store, but it’s something when a rival product also throws in web browsing as well.
But, let’s put the free web access thing aside. Both tablets have a highlight+note feature. The idea is simple – highlight favorite parts of the novel, and attach a short note to it. The nook does just that and nothing more. Searching for previous notes is a bit clunky, you find the first highlight and you can jump through all subsequent ones. Not bad for a short novel, a bit annoying when it’s a note or two in a large one.
The Kindle has a more organized way – it display s a summary page of all the highlight/notes. It’s a software thing, and nook can easily catch up(I hope) with a well placed firmware update or two.
But, will there be such an update(and if so, in time)?
It’s a shame, as I prefer the sleekness of the nook, but it’s missing the polished feature set of the kindle.
