Nook Simple Touch and Me

Disappointment about Nook Simple Touch

I bought Nook Simple Touch and I read the book, every day with Nook Simple Touch. But I disappointment about some feature.

1.Only US Ebook store

I live in Singapore and I can’t buy book from B&N. I can’t add my Master card to my B&N account. So, I bought a book from Kobo store. So, I need to download epub from Kobo and then add into computer. And then sync with Adobe Digital Edition.

2.Share

I can connect with facebook, but it’s useless. I can’t share some text to facebook or twitter. It only allows for B&N ebook. That is unfair. It’s a same function and they should allow to share. It’s not a big deal. It looks like force to buy from their ebook store, but we can’t buy from Singapore, sorry.

3.Memory

In website,

2GB2 Holds up to 1,000 books (1GB for content; 750 MB reserved for B&N content).

I only saw 236 MB available storage in device info.

4.Images

In their FAQ,

NOOK Simple Touch supports the following file types: ePub, PDF, PNG, JPG, GIF, and BMP.

However, it only supports epub and PDF. I can’t open neither PNG nor JPG. PNG and JPG format are only for screen saver.

5. PDF zoom

I read manga with PDF format and Nook STR can’t show clearly the text like iPad. May be screen is too small for manga. I want to zoom the PDF . However, I found they didn’t add this feature because of power usages.

6. Device Sync

I want to sync with my Nook For Mac and device. It can only sync the books that we bought from B&N. I can’t check my notes and bookmark in Nook For Mac.

….

Over all , I love my Nook STR for reading and it’s a good reader. I hope, they will support send file via email or wireless sync. I want to read my readitlater or readability with nook simple touch. I don’t want to do with calibre. I hope, they will support like Amazon Kindle feature.
