Actually, I'm thinking of take my NOOKcolor back and buying an iPad. I want something that will do it all and was hoping that the NOOKcolor would fit the bill. I downloaded some videos m4v format, but NOOKcolor does not support this format although in their User's Guide it states that they do. I don't have a calendar or easy access to my email. I think iPad is the way to go.
It depends on what you want. If you are looking primarily for an e-book reader with enhanced functions, the NOOKColor is by far the best choice. If you are looking for a tablet that you will use occasionally to read e-books, and if the price-point ($499 for the cheapest) doesn't make you choke, then get your iPad.
As pointed out by Michael, the NOOKColor does support m4v if encoded to the specs he listed ... IMHO the iPad is much too heavy for reading for an extended period of time.
