Every other requested feature is PDF support. Maybe B&N hope to satisfy those people.

Currently uses Android 2.1 so no Flash but reports say it will be upgraded to 2.2 and then Flash will be available.

meh. Its just an over sized cell phone. I can read nookbooks on my cell, I can read Kindle books on my cell.

Impressive looking and fun to dream about, but that is really all it is.

Been looking for a backlit unit. This would make a nice christmas present for my kids.

I like it. I'll wait for the reviews, but this is very tempting. Wonder how Amazon will react.

Er... wuh, is this a bad joke? It's not an e-reader anymore without 'e-ink'.

EDIT: Before getting an e-reader, I usually read ebooks on my lcd monitor / computer. Why should I bother reading on ANOTHER lcd screen at home, right? The entire point is that it looks like paper and I can carry it around (not that I ever carry it out of the home, though!).

Am I mistaken but in slide 14 of the Cnet article, is that a crudload of fingerprints on the screen? fail.

i've lost faith in B/N
My eInk nook has been a big dissappointment lately, and now there's an lcd nook that wants to be an ipad without the app store. Sounds like fail to me.
When I first saw this I got all excited for a Qi or Mirsol, werent they supposed to be available by the end of this year

Yeah, I noticed that. It's pretty awful. But to be fair, someone will come out with an anti-glare screen protector that will do away with this.

And that's why people who favor eInk aren't the target market for this device.

This will sell to the masses; not to avid readers.

As an ebook reader it does seem lacking, but I wonder what the hackers will be able to do with it. I'm sure a custom android ROM will appear soon after it's launched. With such a nice screen and low price tag it could be a killer tablet.

I just scanned the article "Barnes & Noble Reveals The Nook Color, Please Act Surprised" by Matt Burns at CrunchGear and read this:

....."The entire thing weighs in at 15.6 oz with a thickness of .48-inches — that’s just 5.4 oz heavier and .12-inches thicker than the new Kindle."

Uh, no. The B&N website puts the weight of the Wi-Fi Nook Color at 15.8 ounces. The Kindle Wi-Fi weighs 8.5 ounces. That's a 7.3 ounce difference. It's over 85% heavier, hardly something I would describe with the adjective "just". It's even 7.1 ounces heavier than a Kindle 3G. Even there, the weight is 180% that of the Kindle.

Still, I might end up buying one if the virtual keyboard works well and apps are available for writing, although I would still use my eInk Kindle for reading. The price is very tempting and the color screen could be just the thing for certain books and magazines.

One thing I won't do is to make the mistake of being an early adopter of this new technology. I got Nook-burned once, never again.
