Barnes and Noble is going to stop building nooks in-house, and they've cut the prices on their Nook HD and HD+, which are great tablets if you don't mind not having a camera. Word is that Microsoft may buy that entire line of business from them.

Yeah, those are all tablets optimized for buying books. This thread is about dedicated the Paperwhite e-readers.

The 2nd gen Paperwhite arrived today. It's exactly like the 1st gen, except it says "Amazon" on the back instead of "Kindle", the contrast is better and the display illumination is more even at the bottom. There are a couple of software enhancements, like the vocabulary builder and the page flip feature. They improved the best e-reader.

I gave the 1st gen to my wife.
