While plenty of people have "rooted" their Nook Colors with custom firmware that allows them to access the Android Market and download applications, most Nook Color buyers have stuck with the official firmware that came with the device.
It's worth noting that Barnes & Noble seems to be shying away from actually calling the Nook app store the Nook App Store, which may be a good idea considering Apple just sued Amazon.com for naming its Android app store the Amazon Appstore for Android. Apple says it has trademarked the term "App Store."
As for HSN selling the Nook Color for $299.90, that's $50 more than you need to spend for the Nook Color (its list price is $249.99). We'll have an in-depth look at the Nook Color update once it launches in April. Barnes & Noble CEO William Lynch has previously stated that the Nook Color would offer Flash support in 2011, though he never committed to a more specific time frame.
Barnes and Noble's Nook Color will have access to Android Apps and a web browser with Flash, that says the updates are coming in April. The Nook Color already runs on Android, but users only have access to a handful of apps like the Nook store and a media player.
