Barnes & Noble Nook Color E-Reader Packs Punch | Katherine Boehret | The Mossberg Solution | AllThingsD

Apparently no Kindle reader client option yet; otherwise it looks like a fairly compelling $249 7” Android tablet

The Nook Color

Eight apps found in a section called Extras come loaded on the device including apps for Pandora Internet Radio, chess and Sudoku. I logged into my Pandora account, quickly retrieved my saved list of stations and played a QuickMix of music. I was able to work on a crossword puzzle or read a book or magazine on the Nook Color while still listening to Rihanna on the music app. Microsoft’s Quickoffice software for Word, Excel and PowerPoint comes built into the Nook Color so users can view—but not edit—documents in these programs if they’re loaded onto the device with a MicroSD card. Until the Nook Color’s app store launches early next year, there’s no way to download free or paid apps.
