Thinking about buying a nook for yourself or someone else? Wondering which model is the best purchase – nook or nook Wifi “Lite”? Good question, and as a veteran nook user and troubleshooter I think I can help! There are only three differences between these two models.
1) The nook Wifi is $50 cheaper.
2) The nook Lite does not have free AT&T Cell Service for buying books anywhere (you have to connect to a computer or wif-fi network)
3) The nook Lite has a white back instead of a gray back panel.
That's it! Obviously cheaper is better so let's look at the other two differences.
Do you need the 3G feature? The regular nook has a built in cellular network connection that's free for life to buy books anywhere you can get an AT&T data signal. However, the 3G service for the nook, based on my recent experiences, still doesn't work great in non-3G areas (even though it has the right radio equipment). If you aren't in an area with the AT&T 3G service most of the time or don't mind using wifi or connecting your computer to buy books get a nook Wifi.
Do you hate white? Seriously, some people will like the back of the regular nook because of the contrast of the dark back panel. For $20 you can change it out the nook white back or buy a decal for your nook and you're still $30 ahead! If you don't mind the white back panel or would just change it out anyway buy a nook Wifi.
I bought a nook for $259 when they were first available. If I had to do it again, I'd buy a nook Wifi in a heartbeat. It's a great deal and the options for the nook are much better than the similarly priced Kobo and Amazon readers. Keep the $50 and buy some books!Order now & get free delivery!
