B&N officially made the Nook Color the best iPad alternative tablet last week with the addition of email, calander, and apps. It was already a fan favorite with those features and more, but only by way of a healthy dose of modding. Now anyone can buy the Nook Color and most of the features modders have been enjoying for months. If you’re going to buy it, why not snag it from Best Buy this week? They’re throwing in a bonus $25 gift card, which could cover the cost of a case or microSD card.
