If you’re expecting a typical, ordinary e-book reader, you’ll be impressed by the Nook Color, which can easily be mistaken for a tablet PC at first glance.

Unlike traditional e-readers that use e-ink technology, the Nook Color features a 7-inch full-color LED-backlit IPS display. This type of display is similar to what Apple uses on its iPad and Mac devices. The Nook Color, however, is enhanced with Barnes & Noble’s custom VividView Technology, a screen laminating technique that reduces glare.

The Nook Color is slightly larger and heavier than the e-ink Nook. It weighs 15.8 ounces and measures 8.1 inches in length, 5 inches in width, and 0.5 inches in thickness. The front of the device is made of hard plastic, while the back has a smooth, rubberized finish.


Inside the Nook Color is a system that is based on Android 2.1, an operating system widely used in today’s tablets and smartphones. The Android-based software in the Barnes & Noble e-book reader delivers a satisfying experience.

Users of this color e-reader report quick performance, a responsive touchscreen, fast page turns, nearly flawless image quality, and crisp text. You can also easily access photo albums and view PDF documents.

Notable Features

As one of the first color e-book readers on the market, this Barnes & Noble device garnered a lot of attention upon its release. The Nook Color now offers additional functionality such as web browsing, the Pandora music application, email, and video playback. It is also designed to work seamlessly with B&N’s new features and technologies.

There is the new Nook Kids brand, which promotes reading colorful, illustrated children’s e-books on the Nook Color. Nook Friends allows users to share favorite lines from books with friends and family via Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, Barnes & Noble has retained its book sharing feature, the exclusive LendMe technology.

The Bottom Line: Nook Color Review

Barnes & Noble has made an effort to release an e-book reader that is not only sleek and feature-packed but also affordable. Priced at just $249, it offers much more than just e-book reading capabilities.

However, it is not without its flaws. The battery life An Artist Portrait (Part Two) - This is the Part Two (and final part) of the true life story as artist written by Frank V. Cahoj for our Weblog. (Part One) An Artist Portrait (Part Two) I give an unbelievable amount of credence to these two early periods in my life: one of everlasting creation, one of analysis and disillusionment. The… , for example, is relatively short for an e-reader, lasting only 8 hours without a recharge. This pales in comparison to what other e-ink e-book readers can achieve. Additionally, the Nook Color uses an LCD display, which is not ideal for extended reading as it can cause reflective glare and eye strain.
