RE: Too Bad that Even as Just an E-Reader it's Worse than iPad

If he were going to bash the iPad, he should have just left it at form factor, where the Nook excels. I don't know what pixels and processing power have to do with rendering text...practically all of these tablets are overkill in the horsepower department and they all seem to have decent resolution and PPI.
With the rumors of Apple releasing an 8" iPad, it won't be long before they have a e-reader, anyway.
