I'll answer questions about the nook color!

Ask away! I know more than most.

Is it going to be as easier to hack as the original nook?
Can I put kindle app in it and buy cheaper books from Amazon?

I would say it would bounce maybe as far as if you were dropped from that height.

The better question is:

Why do you feel you know more than most and how much is "more".

How much RAM does it have? How much of the 8Gb of storage are available for the user?

The color nook will support pdfs and allow zoom and pan via multi-touch gestures. I am very happy about that support as it will help me quite a bit with a number of tech documents I have.

Easy. Works fine. It doesn't feel that heavy - the display is really something. Images look really sharp.

Probably. There is a bar on the bottom that looks like it might support software android buttons, but that probably won't be till version 1.1 of the software. Final version of the software isn't done yet...

I've seen it!

Quote:

I don't know the first one, even though I'd like to. I think it was a little shy of 6GB available?

PDF, word files, powerpoint, etc. There's a nice interface for finding them, including folders.

I think it would really depend on the angle of nook impact and if it were in a case.

If dropped properly, landing on a 32.5 degree angle directly on the design element, the nook will (in a vacuum) rebound with the kinetic energy roughly equal to 28.73 percent of the initial potential energy.

The more charms you have on it, the better.

Any other questions about the interface? Multiple homescreens, ability to clean them up, video play seems snappy and will auto-orient itself the right way.

I saw some 3d graphics demos and it looked pretty capable there too - not a single hint of framerate drop.

Curious how "powerful" (perhaps "versatile" would be a better word) the browsing is.

I assume, but ask anyway, one can still not sideload non-B&N content via wifi.

In other words, can I download books from BooksonBoard via wifi, for instance?

Browsing was incredibly slick. The only issue was with pinch to zoom, which seemed to be a little finicky. The speed of everything was fantastic though - I was very impressed with how quickly it would load pages, and it was getting significantly better reception than the nooks sitting next to it.

I didn't see a wireless sideloading feature. I'd be surprised if someone didn't hack it in though.

I should have tried to download an ebook directly from a website, to see if you can save it directly - I've heard that's coming to the nooks themselves sometime, and if I had to guess I'd think that would work.

My guess - if you can access a website to download a compatible format, you're golden.
