I want some thing like this or both whats the difference other than nook being an ereader the ipod is it more for game usuage.I'm lost in all the tech. gadgets mumbo jumbo.So I ask this question please help I speak to the sales dept. but I still don't fully understand.I feel stupid.Glad I haven't purchased anything yet since the nookHD+ ships this week found out about these a few weeks ago @ B&N site,now the ipod 5th gen is sold [email protected]____.com

I would use it for books,childrens books like the narrator w/ the nook for kids,catalogs/magazines,organization w/calendar,birthdays appts.,shopping lists,note taking things not necessarily need wifi for,facebook etc.,games for me/kids I can set up to 6 profiles on nookHD+ not sure about others,the down fall is no camera w/ nooks but since I have my camera in my purse I guess I can over see that.I've been on B&N site to look at what they offer in their store for apps looks pretty good has what i'm looking for.The ipod would be more for the kids the fit is better for their hands and is light somethig I could put in my purse and take w/ us

What can I do next?

I would decide on what you want to use the device PRIMARILY for -- if it's as an eReader go for the nook, it has the bigger screen, yes? Then you'll have a device with a bigger screen that will also do everything that the ipod touch will do. If its for portability and music, go with the ipod. It will also function as an ereader. I have a kindle that I love so I'm more of an ereader girl.. but I'm getting my son the ipod touch for christmas because he wants something to take with him to play his music on.

Plus.. the Nook is less expensive - right?

The nook HD is a tablet not exclusively an ereader.
Nook has access to a version of the android market, it has apps , games, and even a version of word, and a pdf reader.
Get the NookHD+

I wouldnt do the ipod5 they are selling the 16g ipod4 for 199 which is cheaper and the big difference is the color and if you don't get a sturdy cover (which hides the color anyway) your kinda silly since they are pretty fragile. The nook HD does have apps and games and stuff but if you use itunes go with the ipod since they are compatible.

What are you wanting to use it for????
Then from there, you get the device that will provide you with what you want, per how you want to use it, and per your budget.

The Nook, has a bigger screen. So if you plan to use the device to READ... then to me, you'd want a bigger screen, which the iPod touch does not have. It is smaller.

Then, Apple products, all work together and can be synced together. So, that means, if you have an Apple computer and other Apple gadgets, you can sync it all together and download things, very easily. And Appple apps for their gadgets, are very easy to find and get and many are free too. Which includes, games. But they also have books you can download and podcasts etc. But again, the iPod screen, is smaller... so reading a "book" on it, is harder... the font of the words, is just smaller. Because it is a smaller screen. SO then, I would get an iPad.
Which is so similar to a Nook HD, but different brand and operating system.

Again, research it, but know what you want it for.
Then choose your gadget, based on that and your budget.
