Barnes & Noble’s NOOKcolor Android-powered e-reader

Barnes & Noble unveiled NOOKcolor, the book retailer’s second gen Android-powered e-reader. While the first gen Nook utilized both an electrophoretic “e-paper” screen and a full-color touch panel, this generation goes for the pure tablet experience, and uses a 7″ (1024 x 600) LCD touchscreen.

The NOOKcolor is just under half an inch thick and weighs 15.8 ounces, it features 802.11b/g/n, comes with 8GB of storage, supports microSD cards up to 32GB. The battery life is purported to be around 8 hours if the Wi-Fi is turned off.

NOOKcolor doesn’t feature access to Android Market and its 100,000+ apps. However, it does support “NOOK Extras” such as Pandora Internet radio, various games, and media player.

The new NOOKcolor can be pre-ordered both online and in stores for $249 and it’ll begin shipping around Nov’19.
