Curling Up With a Good Screen

So, now that they've both been out for quite a while, I have to ask: Kindle or nook?

I've been itching to get into the e-reader craze for a while, holding off until I had the money and second versions and/or software patches were released. I'm expecting some funds to come in for my birthday for the specific purpose of securing an e-reader, and I want impressions on the Kindle vs. the nook now that there's been enough time for the initial shiny to wear off.
I like the nook because the LCD screen looks cleaner than the keyboard, but I've heard that it isn't very responsive. I've also heard that an update was released making it more responsive, but I don't know by how much. I've held a Kindle and like its aesthetic. For the most part, the books I'd be purchasing are available on both platforms.
So, what evidence do you have that would make one better than the other. Is Kobo even better than either of the two older products? I don't think I'm interested in the Sony Reader, and an iPad isn't in my price range right now, plus it doesn't have e-ink.
