Does one even matter in comparison to the other?
I find both the Nook and Kindle very easy to use, with great comfort and since the displays are both 6" E-Ink Pearl that is a non-issue. The touch on the Nook is an infrared boundary around the outside, so it isn't a capacitive layer. Both have buttons, neither are back-lit. Unless you get the Kindle PaperWhite or Nook Glow … and of those I would recommend the Kindle again - testing it out I found it superior in display quality.
