Review of the Barnes and Noble Nook Color e-Reader
Good E-Book Readers
1 April 2013
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. Say you have a child and you are interested in kids books.
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.
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: 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.
Nook Color Review - Barnes & Noble Nook Color eBook Reader
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
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.

Excerpt: The Nook Color is the latest ebook reader from Barnes and Noble which comes with a 7 inch vividview screen for reading books and magazines. The Nook Color also has a collection of extras that add to the usefulness of the device such as games, a web browser and Pandora. The Nook Color as an ebook reader is a very nice device.
