I'm interested in the iPad AS AN E-READER more than all the other cool stuff it can do. I've looked at the Nook Color and was disappointed because the background seemed washed out. The B&W Nook, with it's "E-ink" seemed like very good contrast, which is what I need. In other respects the Nook doesn't float my boat much. My question is: How does the iPad compare in terms of contrast when you are using the e-reader feature? Is it color Nook-like, B&W Nook-like, or something else altogether? Thanks for any feedback.
