    12 Days Of Christmas: Nook Color Giveaway

    Reading and books: probably the most fantastic gifts possible. That said, the Nook Color can do books, magazines, simple games, and browse the web all on an Android system. It’s been called an iPad light and that’s a great description, really. Normally these run $249.99 in Barnes & Nobel stores, but as the last item in our 12 Days of Christmas giveaway extravaganza… Read More

  • Barnes & Noble Confirms Android Market Definitely Not Coming To Nook Color

    Barnes & Noble Confirms Android Market Definitely Not Coming To Nook Color

    I’m not sure there was every any real conviction that the Android Market would eventually make it to the Nook Color, but nevertheless, Barnes & Noble has made it clear that no, there’s no chance. The Nook Color will have apps made just for it (the SDK was recently released), but beyond that, apps are verboten. Read More

    18,000 B&N Nook Colors Are Being Produced Each And Every Day

    B&N has high hopes for the Nook Color. High expectations is actually more like it. The company’s chairman Len Riggio recently in an article, “B&N is manufacturing Nook Colors at a rate of 18,000 per day and is loading up a 747 every four to five days to bring devices to the U.S. from China” So yeah, for B&N’s sake, hopefully at least a few of you have the… Read More

    Nook Color SDK Released, Go Get Your Develop On

    The Nook Color is starting to make minor waves (in spite of my prejudice) as it’s really quite a lot of machine for $250. And now the SDK has been opened up, which should allow the usual suspects to adapt their existing Android apps to the Nook’s hardware. It’s not like the Nook Color is some undiscovered country, though, filled with exotic future tech. It’s just a… Read More

    Hacknooks Part Deux: Nook Color Rooted

    Not long after the original Nook came out, it was hacked, and progress on that front has been consistently documented over at NookDevs. The latest update to the Nook Color page indicates that yes, the new device has been rooted in part, a new UI installed (LauncherPro), and apps side-loaded to the “extras” section of the native UI.

  • Colorín, Colorado: Barnes And Noble Debuts NOOKbooks En Español

    Colorín, Colorado: Barnes And Noble Debuts NOOKbooks En Español

    Looks like Barnes and Noble has launched NOOKbooks en español, which, as you may have guessed, is a store that sells libros españoles. (I’ve no idea why Barnes and Noble insists on random capitalization when it comes to Nook stuff, however.) The books sold there are compatible with all makes and models of the Nook universe, including the new Nook Color. Read More

  • Early Bird Showdown: Barnes & Noble Nook Color vs. Amazon Kindle

    Early Bird Showdown: Barnes & Noble Nook Color vs. Amazon Kindle

    Barnes & Noble just announced the Nook Color a few moments ago, and my initial reaction was much the same as Devin’s: yikes! I guess a color LCD screen is perfect for reading Goldilocks and The Three Bears, but when it comes to reading grown-up books, books with words in them, meh. With that in mind, let’s see how the Nook Color stacks up against the Amazon Kindle… Read More
