The Nook looks alright, but seems really laggy, thick and shorter battery life than the Kindle. But, if I go with the Kindle, it seems that it's due for an update soon. What is Amazon's regular schedule for updates on the Kindle? When do we expect the Kindle 3? What features? And since I'm buying this in Canada, and it's not officially available here, the wireless is rendered useless. How else can I get books on my device than buying them from Amazon? Can I buy the ePub ebooks and put them on? What formats and stores does it support? Cheers.
