They are both very similar in price and capabilities. The new super kindle and the new version of the Nook will both be out very soon and I hear the pricing for both will be below $200. Personally I will go with the super kindle...only because I am more familiar with the kindle than the nook. Either one will be a good choice. It's really hard to place one over the other...they are both good machines. Sorry I guess I wasn't very definitive.
