Nook Color

The Good

Color e-book reader with vibrant 7-inch touch screen; zippy performance; built-in Wi-Fi; Barnes & Noble Nookbook store; 8GB onboard memory, plus microSD expansion slot; built-in Web browser works well; supports PDF, Word, and ePub files; displays images and some video formats; support for audio and MP3 playback; new Nook apps expand functionality of the device and make it more of a full-featured tablet; Flash support for Web browser.

The Bad

Eight hours battery life for reading pales in comparison with battery life on e-ink readers; no access to full Android Market; battery isnt user-replaceable; processor could be faster.

The Bottom Line

Barnes & Nobles Nook Color is a capable color touch-screen e-book reader that offers much of the functionality of an Android tablet for half the price of an iPad. Read CNETs full review
