I have been using the NOOKcolor (NC from this point forward) a lot the last few days. I haven’t been able to spend enough time with it to do a full review but I am hoping to share some of the features and thoughts that I’ve had so far.
The VividView™ screen is beautiful. It has great viewing angles and is quite bright – yet I have not suffered any eye fatigue after more than four hours of reading different types of media (book, newspaper, magazine, and web).
The mono speaker works well and produces surprisingly good sound. When using the Nook Kids books Read To Me feature, the speaker is clear and distortion free. Playing the bundled Pandora through the speaker works well, as long as you don’t try to really push the volume.
The primary function of the NC is to function as an e-reader. There are so many functions and nice little touches that I personally feel make this THE e-reader to beat. I’ve spent a good bit of time with most other e-readers (and not as much time as I would have liked with Kindle) and feel that e-ink worked but there is nothing that can touch having a vivid color screen.
I want to leave you with this thought as I finish my review of the NOOKcolor…as of this moment, this is personally my favorite Android device to date. I am in love with it. Period.
