A request for the next nook

Status: Acknowledged

     These forums are an excellent place to collect good ideas for improving the nook experience and I would like to contribute as well. I have had the 1st generation nook and now the nook simple touch. The e ink readers are by far my favorite method of reading novels old and new. I have some requests I'd like to make of the next e ink reader Barnes and Noble create.

 

     First I would like an e ink reader with a screen bigger then 6 inches. As much as I like being able to slip my nook simple touch into a large coat pocket, I am able to get my 10 inch Samsung galaxy 2 where ever I go with out difficulty. Amazon offers a 10 inch e ink reader but it does not support the formats that nook traditionally supports and I would have to rebuy the library I have already purchased from Barnes and Noble. A 10 inch nook ereader would be a perfect addition to the nook family for those who not only want a larger screen for the fun of having one but also for those whose eye sight has deteriorated with age.

 

     My second request would be at least one set of page turning side buttons. The newest nook addition was created with out them. From what I see on the forums that isn't necessarily a popular decision. The side button's have been useful in my nook simple touch and can be designed without adding a great deal of bulk to the nook.

 

     It may go without saying but the nook product has been able to absorb accidental abuse that other tablets don't survive very well. I certainly hope you continue the trend.

 

     Finally if it can be economically incorporated (I know I am talking to a business here) I would like to see a keyboard attachment of some kind for the e ink readers. There seems to be demand for it, and even the most basic text file can be copied and pasted to word or the more advanced document programs. A key board that works on e ink readers would be a welcome accessory.

 

    Thank you for your time

This post is the reason why I came to this site!

 

The e-ink readers are superior for reading outdoors, and yet all the e-ink readers on the market are incredibly small. I want an e-ink reader that is the same size as my iPad. One reason why I want a larger e-ink reader is because currantly the larger the font-size the more often you are turning the pages, which disrupts the reading experience.
