This could be a game changer. This new upgrade is running google’s Android. It’s an ereader, a browser & has some game capabilities. With android it has the power under the hood to be a full functioned tablet computer.
The ereader just might morph into a tablet computer at a price point much lower than the ipad.
A quote on features - "The Nookcolor can be used for reading digital books, magazines, newspapers and children's books. It ups the competition for e-readers by including functions common to more expensive tablet computers such as Apple's iPad with features such as games, music, Web browsing and its own application store. It runs on Google Inc.'s Android operating system."
