my two coworkers each has evo, none of them has the issue you said. you may want to restore your device to factory installation. you probably get some kind of virus.

Have you even used the nook? It's a great device. Aside from the bezel issues, it's a solid piece of tech.

I have doubts that Android will make a good e-reader platform. Google said it isn't good for tablets after all, and e-readers can be thought of a specialized tablet.

Not being a big fan of picture books anymore I really don't see the need for a colour screen on an e-book reader.

Graphic novels man......

I have an original Nook and I love it. It's Android based and I've had no problems with it (an occasional reboot and the battery doesn't last as long as I'd like). I was skeptical about the Nook and Kindle but wanted to try them...then when I was given one I turned into a believer. I was lent The Stand in dead tree format and it's killing me holding that thing...and it takes up so much room. I've read over 100 books on the Nook and could hardly be more enthusiastic. The only downside for me is that I can't get all the used books that I get onto it :)
