Nook Simple Touch
Barnes & Noble also made a breakthrough in the pure e-reader market dominated by Amazon. The companys $99 Nook Simple Touch, with its touch-controlled black-and-white E Ink screen, left similarly-priced Kindles in the shade.
Amazon has returned fire with the new Kindle Touch, also priced at $99. Ive tried both, with happy results. But Id still pick the Nook Simple Touch as the best device of its kind.
