Nookcolor e-book reader underachieves - The Boston Globe

I’ll consider buying one when there’s a supported Kindle client for the device

B&N could quickly authorize hundreds of apps — games, social networking software, news and sports programs, and pretty much anything else that runs on the hottest new Android based tablet computer, the Galaxy Tab from South Korea’s Samsung Group.

But the Tab costs up to $650, plus a monthly cellular data bill. The Apple iPad costs about the same. At $249, the Nookcolor is the cheapest high-quality tablet on the market. Or it would be, if B&N would market it as a full-fledged tablet that’s also an excellent e-reader. But B&N won’t do that. For now.
