Kindle Paperwhite vs. Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight

View : 219

Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite 2013 looks like a black rectangle measuring 6.7 x 4.6 x 0.4 inches, while the Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight looks more like a white square with gray silicone edging that measures 6.5 x 5 x 0.42 inches. While the white Nook chassis provides a nice break from the plethora of black slates on the market, we actually preferred the starkness of the Kindle’s black outline when reading.

Description : Kindle Paperwhite vs. Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight


Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite 2013 looks like a black rectangle measuring 6.7 x 4.6 x 0.4 inches, while the Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight looks more like a white square with gray silicone edging that measures 6.5 x 5 x 0.42 inches. While the white Nook chassis provides a nice break from the plethora of black slates on the market, we actually preferred the starkness of the Kindle’s black outline when reading. Also, the trim on the Nook isn’t glued on, just snapped into place. That leaves a visible gap that adds a cheapness to its design.
 
 
The GlowLight features two buttons, and the Kindle has a single bottom-placed power button. The little “N” for “Nook” beneath the display can be used to turn the GlowLight on and off, wake the device from sleep or return to the home screen. On both devices, the power button can also be used to wake up the device.
Oddly, holding down the Kindle power button only offers the options to restart or turn off the screen. There is no power-down option, which the Nook does offer. The GlowLight also comes with another feature that the Paperwhite does not offer: a built-in anti-glare screen protector on top of the 6-inch display. However, in direct sunlight, we didn’t notice a difference between the two screens.

Both even let you borrow books from your friends or from the public library. But there are some significant differences in the design, user interface and available content offered by the two devices. We go round-by-round to help you choose the right e-reader.
