Barnes & Noble Nook Touch Size Comparison

I did this yesterday for Kobo.

Today is Barnes & Noble’s turn. I’ve arranged them by height:

Amazon Kindle 3: 7.5″ x 4.8″ x 0.335″ – 8.5-8.7 oz
Kobo Reader: 7.24″ x 4.72″ x 0.393″ – 7.795 oz
Sony Reader Touch 2: 6.62″ x 4.75″ x 0.4″ – 7.58 oz
Kobo eReader Touch: 6.5″ x 4.5″ x 0.4″ – 7.1 oz
Barnes & Noble Nook Touch: 6.5″ x 5.0″ x 0.47″ – 7.48 oz
Sony Reader Pocket: 6.25″ x 4.25″ x 0.41″ – 7.6 oz
Sony Reader Pocket 2: 5.75″ x 4.12″ x 0.34″ – 5.47 oz

The new Nook is the widest of all of them!

    …and 0.47 inches thick. Am I missing something or is there no dictionary lookup, highlights or notes on this thing?

      I just posted their demo video. There’s dictionary lookup. No mention of notes or highlighting or even bookmarks. But there must be bookmarks. I think whatever Nook has had to date is also in this new one. I don’t, however, see screen rotation listed anywhere. The new Kobo Touch had that.

        There is no screen rotation. You would think that they would mention the dictionary lookup on their website…I’m not seeing it.

        Check out the video. And in the slides Lynch showed at the intro, there was a Look Up screen showing a word definition.

        I see that it does…I just don’t see any mention of it on the features.

        I had to chuckle at the “thinness!” remark on the video. It’s 0.2″ thinner than the old one…not particularly thin!
