I did a lot of research before buying my Nook and I have to say that I really love it! I have a friend who got a Kindle and i compared the two and I still don't regret my decision. I absolutely love the touch screen, especially when I am at the gym and I can just swipe across the screen to turn pages instead of slowing down to push a button. I also like the selection of books and the fact that i can go into any B&N store and read books for free. I also get great coupons when in the store like a free pastry from Starbucks :] Another feature I like is that B&N offers free ebooks. I don't always have the money to buy a new book, so I love to hit up this section! The last feature I really enjoy is that it has expandable memory when the Kindle doesn't.

The early bird may get the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

It is worth noting that you can actually try the Kindle 2 in person in most Target stores.
Anyway, I am totally in agreement with your points. I felt that the Nook just looked more modern, while the Kindle looked almost antique with all of those buttons. The contrast between text and background on the Nook was also much better than the Kindle from my comparison.
The Nook is certainly buggier, because it isn' the Nook 2 yet. That was my one concern, but I am very impressed with the support that Barnes and Noble gives the Nook and the updates we have had so far.
