Barnes & Noble Having A Breakfast NOOK Event On November 7th, But How Will All Those Journalists Fit In One Room?

It seems earlier suspicions that Barnes & Noble would be unveiling a replacement for the NOOK Color on November 7th have been all but confirmed by an e-mail invitation the company has sent out to major tech outlets:

There has been no reliable information about the next NOOK Color leaked at this point, though with a week to go, we won't be surprised if the device gets an unauthorized blurrycameo before its official unveiling.

If you're looking to get a decent Android tablet, but don't want to break the bank, then little compares the Barnes & Noble Nook Color.

It has modest specs, comparable to most mid-range smartphones (on the inside, that is):

  • 8GB built-in storage

[Deal Alert] Barnes & Noble NOOK Color For $189 From eBay Daily Deals

The NOOK Color is probably one of the most popular Android tablets on the planet - and it's not even a full-fledged tablet out of the box. Regardless, it's quite easily hacked, and because of this, has been embraced by the Android modding community. In a world of dual-core processors and ten inch screens, it's no powerhouse, but for price and portability, you can't beat it. Here's a look at the hardware specifications:

  • 7 inch, 1024x600 display
  • 800MHz TI processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage

It runs a custom version of Android 2.2 out-of-the-box, but can easily be modded to run custom firmware, like CyanogenMod 7, for example.

[Editorial] Will Amazon Create A New Walled Garden Out Of Android?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A major national bookseller decides that they want to make "The Reader’s Tablet." So they grab the Android source code, and they don’t bother to get their device approved by Google so that it can run their apps. Instead, they charge full speed ahead, with not just a custom UI layer but a complete reimagining of what an “Android” device should look like.

Microsoft Suing Barnes & Noble For Not Paying Android-Related Patent Fees For Nook Color

Microsoft announced today that they are filing legal action against Barnes & Noble, Foxconn and Inventec for their collaborative role in manufacturing the Nook Color. Why would Microsoft be suing for anything even remotely related to the Nook Color? As you probably know, the Nook runs a version of Android and Microsoft owns several patents which it claims Android violates. Microsoft says that anyone making an Android device needs to pay them, or else they are going to do as they have done today - and sue them.

PSA: Please Don't Pay $80 For A Nook Color SD Card That Runs Honeycomb

I have a Nook Color and I have had loads of fun modding it. From basic rooting to Froyo, CM7, and Honeycomb, there are several options available now for those wanting to transform it from a tablet-esque eReader into a $250 entry level Android tablet. These operations range from simple to somewhat advanced, so I understand that some people are going to be a little intimidated by the prospect of hacking an expensive device.

[Deal Alert] Hot! Nook Color On Sale For $200 ($50 Off) From Barnes & Noble's eBay Account

As  more high-end Android tablets hit the market, the prices can be pretty overwhelming (I'm talking to you, Motorola XOOM). While it doesn't sport cutting-edge specs, the 7" Barnes & Noble Nook Color has been taken on as a pet project by many in the development community (even running a mostly stable port of the Honeycomb SDK preview), and can be turned into a solid $250 tablet. Now, if you act quickly, you can change that to a $200 tablet when you snatch it up from the manufacturer's eBay account.

Heads Up: Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor Update Rolling Out, May Reset Rooted Devices

Device updates that break root are fairly common - in fact, I'd go so far as to say that the majority of updates do so. What's a bit less common, though, is an update that resets your device because you're rooted. The device in question here is the NOOKcolor, and unfortunately it looks like that's exactly what's happening.

Before I dive into the details, I think it's important to note that I doubt that even as much as manufacturers and carriers dislike when people root their device, it's pretty far over the line for them to remotely wipe the devices of people who have done so.

Barnes & Noble Announces NOOKcolor: 7" IPS Goodness In A $250 Package

Building on the strength of the growing e-Reader market, bookstore giant Barnes & Noble has just formally unveiled its latest device: the NOOKcolor. Rumoured for some time now, but never offering much in the way of solid details, the covers are now off this full-color touchscreen device.

Hard internal specs are still few and far between, but in the case of an e-Reader one thing matters most: the screen. Thankfully B&N has seen fit to equip the NOOKcolor with a high resolution 1024x600 7" IPS display.
