The first Nook Color Thread.

I don't have one yet... But I have one on preorder for my wife. I understand this thing runs on Android... I also understand it's pretty locked down. I also understand... I understand alot... Bear with me. lol.
That Barnes and Noble will have their own app store in the future.

My hope is that this thing can reach its potential with the help of some of you Androidians.

Initially it will just be a supped up ebook reader. Able to browse the web, run a youtube app a facebook app and Pandora and twitter.

Any ideas?

Here's a link to the B&N site http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nookcolor/?cds2Pid=35700

Re: The first Nook Color Thread.

I can see how that would be nice. They're getting their own app store?

Re: The first Nook Color Thread.

We have root shell access to the nook color now and have been able to install a few apps. Its still rough but I expect by tonight it'll be cleaned up. There's a thread on xda about it but I'll cross post here when there's something easier to use.
