Last year’s original Nook was a little odd, with a color touch screen and e-Ink display. It was like the iPad and Kindle had an illegitimate child. Now Barnes & Noble is back with the Nook Color ($250). Still based on Android and offering access to a store library of over two million digital titles, the new Nook features a 7-inch VividView touch screen, 8GB of internal storage, microSD storage expansion, Wi-Fi, a full browser, Pandora, and other applications through the new NOOKdeveloper program — which makes it a whole lot more Apple than Amazon (via Uncrate).
According to Barnes and Noble:
Our spectacular 7-inch VividView™ Color Touchscreen makes reading more engaging than ever. The backlit screen makes it easy to read day or night. Displaying more than 16 million colors in unsurpassed high-resolution, NOOKcolor delivers incredibly rich images and clear, crisp text, making your reading come to life in ways you’ve never experienced before.
