    Viewsonic ViewPad 7 vs Nook Color
    I am buying my wife an eReader/tablet for a gift and we need help deciding which one to go with ViewPad 7 or Nook Color.
    Both are $250 and 7" screen.
    She wants it to read books but i am sure that she will use it for much more once she starts using it.
    I really don't know which one is better, if you guys can help, many thanks.
