Hot deal. Any suggestions for a good case?
Thanks, daughter's Xmas finished now.
Warranty is much better
Would I lose warranty if I rooted this to standard android?
Or can it be reverted to factory easily?

Could you explain why you'd want this on an e-ink device, other than "because you can"?
I wonder seeing as this can be flashed with android, can you run the kindle app on it?

Yes you can.
Nook or Kindle which one better?
Sunni

Yes you can.



But how usable is it? If its pretty good then its a huge plus over buying a kindle device.
not as hot as argos with the free voucher but still a good price

Kindle content? Email? RSS? to name but a few.
But there is no question that you would void your warranty, so if you intend to root, the Argos deal is better.
Also be warned all the easy US Nook hacks on the 'net do not apply to the UK model which is still a work in progress, see

you are right. it's hotter than argos - you get 2 years warranty.

why would you need a 5 quid voucher anyway ?

Good deal, ordered it now. I ordered one y'day from Argos, who wanted £30 for a three year warranty (£10 per year) and £4 delivery charge. This is a much better deal getting the free two year warranty from John Lewis (worth £20) and free delivery, rather than a £5 voucher.
BS about that US Nook hacks don't work on this one! Bought one three weeks ago at PC World (for 95 pounds w/ original cover + 10 pound cashback), rooted as soon as got home. All it took was installin Touch Formatter v2. You get a 1.1 FW and from there it basically is a cakewalk.
Of course if you want to stay on 1.2 FW then you'll have to wait.

And boy - isn't it worth too root!?! I now read all my regular websites through NewsRob (RSS reader) that converts articles via Instapaper format, it also can fetch them for offline use. Every bookreading app on Play is there for your reading pleasure and you don't need to convert that much. PDFs and CBRs work like a charm with PerfectViewer and Dropbox makes the whole experience quite enjoyable.
And yeah - did I mention FastMode?

Is it easy to unroot for warranty purposes?
so many e-readers around now they're like mobile phones now
Same price instore at WHSmith but comes with an extra changeable back worth £12.99 in a choice of colours if you don't want the voucher or the extra waranty

It is not hotter than argos if you want to root the device as you will lose any warranty. I bought one from argos for that exact reason.
I wish people would not compare e-readers with tablets. If a tablet has no e ink and has glare its not an e-reader so why compare. If I wanted glare I'd get an i-pad which will run amplitude but I do not want my eyes burnt out like on a pc, Hence e-ink, I just wish they'd make them more available in a3 size ;-) Good deal though ;-)

hmm... confusion here. WhSmith only sells Kobo readers, they can not sell Nook
Let's be honest, a lot of people are going to buy the Nook just because of its name (Nook short for nookie!).

However, I like the Nook because it displays epubs! No need to convert to mobi. I actually have the Kindle Touch but wish I'd waited for the Nook Glowlight.

GoTab is cheaper and you can do more on it.

You are comparing a tablet to an ereader, the screen on the gotab doesn't compare to this, it does not have e ink
