There happens to be a perennial war between Barner and Noble’s Nook and Amazon Kindle. For some, Kindle is more tech-based, while for others Nook renders the most simplified yet blissful reading pleasure. Now the question that remains glaring is: Will Nook be successful in taking over Kindle at all? Can Kindle reach out to the millions of Nook lovers? Let us find it out ourselves.
The most important thing that becomes a major criterion while choosing an eReader is certainly the price. Will you ever wish to go for a device that has the same features as that of its cheaper substitute, but with a whooping price tag? Therefore, this is one area where Amazon Kindle always gives sleepless nights to B&N’s Nook right from its day of launching. However, Nook has adopted a price modification policy recently, and slashed down its price so that the war of supremacy can remain active.
Next important periphery where Nook and Kindle are placed on face to face conflict is quality of performance and flexibility of operation. Thus, while majority of eReaders find the operational nitty-gritty of Kindle much convenient and user friendly compared to its high-tech features, quite a number of Nook users remain unsatisfied in this area. However, things could have been easily resolved here with the conclusion that Nook is inferior as compared to Kindle unless Nook Color would have got introduced. The Nook Color is a much better species as compared to its sister versions and offer unparallel features that would give cut-throat competition to Kindle. Now this is certainly a clever step of Barnes and Noble’s to keep the flame of war burning actively.
Now if we talk about battery life, which happens to be the spinal cord upon which undisrupted reading pleasure rests, Nook will steal the show. While Kindle Fire claims to give you a span of undisrupted reading for 8 hours once charged, you can enjoy video files on it for 7.5 hours with wireless off. Nook’s claims are certainly more lucrative for eReaders. It remarks that the tablet runs for 11.5 hours at a stretch on a single charge to give you unlimited reading pleasure. Equally enticing is the fact that you can enjoy videos on your Nook tablet for 9 hours! These will make the device a bit ahead of its rival, Kindle. However, it needs to be mentioned here that both the devices offer parallel disk space and memory of 8GB each. But the only twist in the tale is that Kindle supports free cloud storage while upgraded versions of Nook offer memory of 16GB.
