Barnes & Noble launched earlier this week their e-reader, the Nook.
I heard today an interesting interview on NPR's All Things Considered with Gizmodo's Matt Buchanan, who talked about the one thing that everybody is occupied with: is the Nook better than the Kindle? You can listen to the interview right here:
I checked later on Gizmodo.com for more information on the Nook and found an article entitled "8 Reasons You Can Finally Love Ebook Readers (Thanks to Nook)", which gives you a good idea about the Nook's features and compares it with the Kindle.
Dan Nosowitz, the author of this post, brings very good reasons explaining why he fell in love with the Nook - the only reason I was missing of course was the "green" one: how it's more environmentally friendly than a physical book. Amazon didn't provide yet the Life Cycle Assessment that will provide us with the reply to this question, or the data required to conduct it. Hopefully Barnes & Noble will.
