The NookColor fits the bill!

jjohnson252, Ebay
4 September 2014
  • Summary: The NookColor meets my needs. I didn't want the size or weight of an iPad, and this promises to do everything that an iPad does... only more compactly. In fact, the only thing I'm waiting for in the NookColor is the upcoming upgrade that will handle Flash files.

Not just a reader, mp3 player, photo slideshow... it's a TABLET!

doxie1956, Ebay
20 August 2014
  • Summary: I got this for one of my twin 11 y.o. granddaughters. (The other twin, not as responsible, got the Sony PRS-600, with metal cover & no internet access per my daughter's request.) My granddaughter was actually here with me looking at ebook readers on eBay when we found this item & realized it's not...

The Nook Color is a great value and a decent tablet!

captaincooldude, Ebay

  • Summary: The Nook Color is a sturdy feeling reader. It is a little heavier than other E-readers, but it doesn't feel cheaply made. The color LCD display can be a little difficult to see with the glare of sunlight or certain direct lighting.

Great Product. Fast Delivery.

  • Summary: The Nook Tablet 8gb is a terrific way to read books and magazines while enjoying your favorite music. Transferring the songs over to the Nook from my laptop was fast and easy. For folks who want the "full" tablet experience, they sell the N2A card which enables you to boot your Nook into a full...

Good e-reader, but locked down and low battery

April S., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Summary: This product falls in the middle of liquid ink readers and tablet devices. The unfortunate part of compromise is that no one gets what they want. You don't get the readability of eInk in direct (sun) light, ease on eye strain, and long battery life.
  • Pros: It's color, works as a great e-reader, supports apps that connect to my local library for e-book checkout, ergonomic, and lightweight.
  • Cons: Not very fast, but I don't know if it's supposed to be. Low battery life (about 4-hours between charges). Locked down on B&N's system. The Nook HD has an open Android system, allowing you to use apps from the Google Play store. But then again, it's a color e-book reader, not a tablet computer.

Nook

Carol, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this for my grandson for Christmas. We returned it. Every app you download you have to pay for. I got him a Kindle Fire and he loves it. The apps are free on this item. I would not recommend purchasing a nook.

Good product

Frank Joseph Salemi, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this as a second one for my mom. The only drawback is I am not getting the upgrade I got with my original Nook Color I guess since they do not make this product any longer. If anyone knows how I could get the upgrade, that would be great as it has a few nicer features.

Wasn't impressed

Jasper "horseybaby06", Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: I was super disappointed in the Nook color. I decided to go with this over the Kindle because it was cheaper, & I can see why now. The Nook runs EXTREMELY slow, & the frame itself is super sensitive.
