Nook live blog?

I see CNet has one:

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-...m-barnes-noble

Doesn't look like many (any?) of the other big tech sites do: Engadget, TechCrunch, etc. Bad sign?

15 minutes away. Curious to see if the rumors are correct (expect so) and if B&N has anything else up its sleeve.

Looks like a lot of people did. Does that bode well?

I'm following.

They made a big deal about the Kindle with Special Offers (ads). Many don't realize you get ads on the NOOKtouch as well. They advertise books on the homescreen and force download samples that you can't opt-out of.

They must really be worried about Kindle Fire, it seemed like they mentioned it every other sentence.

I was surprised though that the Nook Touch is already getting a new ink screen. Glad I didn't get one back in the summer. I would like to see the new screens though..

I don't understand the difference between the Nook Color and the Nook Tablet. Is it just better performance? Can you watch video already on the Nook Color? Are there things you can do on the Nook Tablet that you can't do on Nook Color?

Yeah, I'm interested as well. Will have to make the trek to a local store.

If you can actually download movies to the Kindle Fire and not just stream them, that's the winner. Sorry, Netflix is great, but ideally I want to download a movie if I'm traveling by car, boat, plane, train. You can't download movies to the NOOK. You could if you had access to the Android Market.

The color is unchanged just received a price drop.

The tablet has better specs, double cpu, ram, storage, and laminated screen. It will also be focused on more media content like preinstalled hulu and netflix

This makes no sense to me either. The price gap as to be bigger. Even $175 might work. But why would anyone buy it at 200 instead of ponying up the extra 50?

I'm actually pretty excited by the NC2/Tablet. As long as it can be rooted, I'll get it (and I don't think there's much chance it can't). But I don't think it has much chance for commercial success against the Fire. 199 is a magic number. I really hoped they'd surprise everyone and come in there (and they might have to drop to it anyway, given the luke-warm response they're getting)

I was thinking less about the price and more about the name. Why is one called Nook Color and the other is called Nook Tablet, if they both do the same things? If I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this, and I'm a techy MR addict, I think the average consumer is REALLY going to have a hard time understanding which to get.

I'm with you on that. Should have dropped the first NOOKcolor and just went with the "new" NOOKcolor. Like they did with the NOOK (eInk). It's referred to as the new Nook. The NOOKcolors look the same.

I'm much more interested in this Cloud service. What else is being said about that, if anything?
