CNET's David Carnoy (a fellow e-book devotee) gave it four stars and an Editors' Choice award, noting that it "splits the difference between the iPad and the Kindle pretty well, offering the color touch screen--neither 'color' nor 'touch screen' is available on the Kindle--at a price and size that's half that of the iPad." Now it's less than half the price of the iPad.
Also, as you may know, the Nook Color does more than just books and full-color magazines. Speaking of tablets, you can now buy a refurbished iPad 1 for just $349. The Nook Color was launched as Barnes & Noble’s push into the color space with an Android-based e-reader touchscreen tablet, but the device has gained more versatile uses thanks to an enterprising developer community, including root access, Android 3.0 Honeycomb port, and the ability to run apps from Android Market, which was restricted by Barnes & Noble at launch. 

You’ll barely find traces of Android on the system and users of the Nook Color cannot install third-party apps as Barnes & Noble wants to define their Android tablet as a tablet for the reading experience. People have the right to buy or sell whatever they want (subject to their respective locales’ laws), but the fact that people are paying this much for a pre-loaded SD card baffles me. Download

Get an SD card, at least 4GB. Using an SD card reader, insert it into your computer. download WinImage, and under ‘Disk’ choose "Restore Virtual Image to Physical Drive." Choose your SD card reader’s drive. Change the files shown at the bottom to "all files" and select the file.

You now have an SD card that will boot into Honeycomb on your Nook Color. You know, one of those $80 Honeycomb for NC SD cards. To get the discount, enter the coupon code CBARNESDD.
