Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Nook vs The Tab Poll

I voted--NC, of course. But could someone explain what Honeycomb is and what the NC couod do that it can't do if it had Honeycomb (assume that the eagerly waited for Android update has already occured). I see that Honeycomb is in first place.

Re: Nook vs The Tab Poll

To early for this poll to carry much weight.

 

The $350 Tab wont hit the shelves til tomorrow(Per some sites)

 

2mil+ NC owners vs 0  GT owners.

 

The Honeycomb results are no surprise since HC is being developed specifically for the 7" platform.

 

I think the tab will be a big hit when it comes out, The $100 gets you open market, 1Ghz proc, 16g on board and front n back cameras.

 

Had it been availiable when I was shopping I would probably be on the SGT general discussion board instaed of here. :smileysurprised:

 

 

JMHO

Re: Nook vs The Tab Poll

I love my NC, but that $350 GT looks really nice. Only $100 more than my NC? I just might have to get one. Over 1,500 people voted for the GT, and they don't even own one Yet? They already know they will like It? I guess so.........

Honeycomb is Android 3.0 which is on the Xoom by Motorola, but it's really not ready for prime time. If you go on XDA or the other techie boards the uproar is on because Google has not released the source code for it. You can root a NC to Honeycomb at the moment, or at least the versions that the devs have come up with. It's supposed to be the first Android OS made for tablets.

I also own both, well my wife has the Tab and I have the NC and I do just as much if not more on the NC. I like both for what they are and I'm really looking forward to the update. But I will go vote for the NC!
For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.
