I am a publisher developing books that will be distributed for the nook color. I don't have and would not like to own a nook color. Can someone who has a nook color perhaps take a rule to their device (unrooted, displaying an epub book) and tell me if the formatting guide is telling the truth? I have been unable to get clarification from BN. Thank you!
I suspect your misunderstanding stems from the assumption that "nook screen" refers to the NC. Most likely the guidelines are aimed at the least common denominator in their product line, meaning the Nook Classic and/or the new eInk Nook.
