Excellent Little Device
I purchased two units directly from Barnes and Noble, one for me, and one for my sister for Christmas. It's a great device and I like it a lot. I like to read technical and scientific English language PDFs and it works well for the documents I've read so far. The web browser is very usable, and the color display is absolutely gorgeous. In book reading mode, the gestures work well and reading over extended periods of time is quite comfortable.
Built-in Wi-Fi, web browser
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color lands halfway between an e-book reader and a tablet computer -- and experts say it's a good compromise. Its main claim to fame is its 7-inch, backlit color touch screen, which testers say displays text a little more crisply and readably than the 9.7-inch Apple iPad 2 (*Est. $400 and up) , though the latest Apple tablet computer -- the new iPad (*Est. $500 and up) -- is equipped with a high-resolution Retina display that is flooring reviewers with its ability to...
Excellent display and build quality
The Barnes & Noble Nook Color may not be the first e-reader with a full color touchscreen, but it's definitely the best color e-reader option available on the market today.

Reading text is totally comfortable
Caught between two worlds, the Nook Color is an undeniably interesting, if somewhat conflicted device. It's not quite a tablet, but it's more than a simple ebook reader. It can do things that an e-ink reader simply can't even if it doesn't always excel at them but it's nearly as cheap at $250.
Great but definitely needs a software update
Well this is my 3rd Kindle and the physical product itself is wonderful. It's lighter, has a great screen with MUCH better contrast and the battery life is great as expected. The fact that the numbers on the keyboard are missing was a little bit of a drag but I'm used to using the top row along with pressing the ALT key to get the numbers and it works fine.
I really like the new keys and the directional control is so much nicer.
