Barnes and Noble Nook Color
Launched in November 2010, the Barnes and Noble Nook Color has a seven inch, high-resolution, color VividView touchscreen. Over 16 million colors bring the screen to life. A backlit screen helps you to read anytime, anywhere. The viewing angle is extra wide, making it easier for you to read or even allow others to read with you.
The Nook Color has eight GB of built-in memory ready to store your favorite books. There are over two million book titles available from which to choose. All you need to do is touch Shop and you will see lists of books such as bestsellers, Barnes and Noble recommendations and new releases. Of these, one million free books are available for you to enjoy. The store is open 24 hours a day, so you can download books at any time. You can also utilize Nook Book Personal Shopping to receive recommendations by expert booksellers specifically for you based on the authors and books you have purchased in the past. Most Nook books are only $9.99 or less, and you can actually try them for free to decide if you want to buy them.
How about a new, interactive reading experience for your kids? With the Nook Color, reading has never been so fun! Through AliveTouch technology, children can choose Read and Play books where they can actually interact with both words and pictures. There is also Read to Me feature if you desire it.
