In my opinion, the Nook Ereader better known as the Nook Color, is the surprise deal of the season. When it comes to the books race, Barnes & Noble seems to be catching up with Amazon.com. If you have an interest in switching to ebooks, and you choose either the Nook or the Kindle, you will find plenty to read. Overall, the Nook color can give the android powered Samsung Galaxy Pad a run for its money, despite being cheaper it's still fully featured. At half the price of an Ipad,the Nook Color appears to have found itself in a pretty distinct niche, of either being a poor man's Ipad, or a rich man's second tablet.

THE GOOD: The Nook Color features a vibrant touch screen 7 inch display. It performs pretty fast; It has built in wi-fi; You have access to the entire Barnes and Noble book store. It has 8 GB of on board memory plus an expansion micro SD slot if you need more. It supports PDF, Word, and E-PUB files. JPEG, PNG, GIF, and BMP image files are viewable, and you can use any personal photo as wallpaper for the device. It plays mp3 and most other common audio files. Most children's books have voice over tracks that read to kids; don't feel guilty about using that feature every once in awhile parents. Books download extremely quickly to the device. In many cases, you can be reading a new book in less than 10 seconds; in some cases 5 seconds.

The Nook color also has an enhanced web browser with the support of Adobe Flash Player for mobile videos rendering, which provides you with interactive experiences. You immediately get access to the android market place which features over a million apps; including your favorite, angry birds. It’s also preloaded with Nook apps such as Pandora Internet radio, Chess, Crossword, Sudoku and media gallery. The gallery has over a million free books ready for instant download. You can also subscribe to news stand favorites such as the New York Times, U.S. Weekly and many other newspapers and magazines.

THE BAD: Eight hours of battery life for reading pales in comparison to other e-ink readers on the market. Off course, like all other popular ebook reading devices, there is no, replaceable battery. There is also no on-board camera, which is the main reason this device is so affordable.
 
CONCLUSION: The Barnes & Noble's Nook Color is a very capable color touch-screen e-book reading tablet, that offers much of the functionality of an Android tablet for half the price of an IPad, which is pretty cool. It has all the important features of the Kindle 3 and all the important features of any, available android tablet and that's what makes it stand alone as the best hybrid(mix) of any device on the market. If the Samsung Galaxy Tab and The Apple Ipad had a baby it would be named the Nook Color. I love it so much because i am a serious ebook reader that wanted the enjoyment that came along with owning a tablet. So if a Kindle is just to boring for you and an Ipad is just to expensive; have no fear the Nook Color is here. I hope this Nook ereader review helped you.
