Gizmodo likes the Nook.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I stopped by the Nook information booth at the local Barnes & Noble store. During our conversation, one of the staffers working the booth referred to AT&T's 3G network as a "Three Gigabyte network". They are booksellers trying to sell technology, so cut them some slack;) The sales pitch was impressive: better readability, more battery life, free downloads at any B&N store plus you can actually lend an e-book to a friend.
But those old doubts still linger: Is this simply about speeding the transaction to promote more impulse purchases? What about DRM? Are the days of using unread books as coasters over? How will I hurl a bad book at the nearest wall? Most importantly, can I still hold book-burning rallies in my study?
