Good E-Book Readers

  • Conclusion: The Nook Color main focus is Barnes and Noble own eBook store. The store itself loads lightning quick, and has access to a ton of content. You can easily browse between New Releases, Bestsellers, New York Times Bestsellers, kids’ books, newspapers and magazines. This new version of the store is only available via the Nook Color.

Barnes & Noble Nook Color Review

Chip Chick
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: We’ve been impatiently waiting for a serious color e-reader for a long, long time. Monochrome e-readers have been out for a while now, and a few color e-readers ...
  • Pros: Excellent display and build quality, 7″ display offers the perfect size for an e-reader in terms of portability and comfort, polished interface, fair price tag, social networking integration, massive library of over 2 million ebooks and periodicals, quick ebook downloads, magazines look brilliant, lots of, are already available for it, Extras have potential to extend the functionality of the device into tablet territory
  • Cons: No 3G option, some lag when turning magazine pages and zooming in and out, battery life isn’t as long as on most monochrome e-readers, a bit on the heavy side, very limited amounts of Extras available so far and no access to Android Marketplace yet.

Barnes & Noble Gives E-Ink the Boot

Gear Patrol
22 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Definitely not an e-reader, and not quite a full-fledged tablet, the newly announced Barnes and Noble’s Nook Color ($250) blends an interesting mix of features that could change the current landscape of gadgets vying to replace your laptop, paperbacks, and magazines.

Barnes and Noble Nook Color eReader Review

31 March 2011
  • Excerpt: probably thought they were pulling an "Apple" when they dropped the "N" bomb late last year with the release of the eReader, but we seriously doubt that they realized that they had a monster on their hands; an affordable Android-based alternative to the iPad that would attract the attention of hackers worldwide. The original E-Ink Nook was an eReader; it lagged horribly when it tried to do anything else.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Excellent screen quality, Easy to use interface, Large eBook selection, Improved web browser, Beautiful looking children's books and magazines, Pandora Internet Radio, Fantastic Android-based tablet that can be rooted, Great value for the money, Solid build quality, Excellent screen quality, Easy to use interface, Large eBook selection, Improved web browser, Beautiful looking children's books and magazines, Pandora Internet Radio, Fantastic Androi...

Barnes & Noble Nook Color

PC Magazine
18 February 2011
  • Conclusion: More than an ebook reader, less than a full-blown tablet, the Nook Color's artful compromises make for a compelling, color reading experience that is ideal for both books and magazines.
  • Pros: Bright, 7-inch LCD screen with 16 million colors. Intuitive touch-based navigation. Runs third-party apps. Deep social integration. Lots of periodicals available.
  • Cons: No 3G, just Wi-Fi connectivity. Proprietary AC adapter. Battery life is short for a dedicated ebook reader.

Nook Color Review - Barnes & Noble Nook Color eBook Reader

eReader Central
27 January 2011
  • Summary: f you are looking for an eReader that focuses on the reading experience, especially for expanded content like full-color periodicals, while also offering a few extra goodies then we think you’ll love the Nook Color.  The biggest trade-off is that the very things we like about this unit, such as its captivating display, are also the things that drag it down (fabulous display equals not so fabulous battery life).
  • Pros: Award-winning display, Generous onboard storage space, Multimedia content including video and full color magazines, Access to word documents, Reasonable price in comparison to competition
  • Cons: Navigation requires a little extra thought, Too heavy, Large format content gets lost on small screen, Battery life pales in comparison to eInk readers

B&N Nook Color Review

Anything but iPod
16 January 2011
  • Excerpt: The old forms of media have seen better days.  Newspapers are losing subscribers daily to internet blogs and internet media that provide up to the minute information impossible to be delivered in the classic format.  No longer do people need to wait for the paper to be delivered in the wee hours of the night to their doorstep.  Barnes and Noble (as well as others) has noticed this trend and is focussed on bringing content to users the way they have become accustomed to.
