Of course, Apple remains the 800-pound gorilla in the room, since as much as the Nook may not match up to the Kindle, the Kindle doesn't really match up to the iPhone/iPod touch either, and were Apple to release a tablet with a larger screen at a competitive price, it would likely destroy both the Kindle and the Nook.

And honestly, I don't think either Amazon or B&N would really care that much - both are booksellers, not gadget-makers, and would probably do well to focus on their core businesses.
