Nook Color Gets Apps In New Update
A new update to the Nook Color makes the reader more like a tablet.
A new update to the Nook Color’s Android operating system will enable app usage on the e-reader, expanding its functionality beyond just reading. However, Barnes & Noble still wishes to retain the Nook Color’s primary function as a reader and thus will screen each individual app in support of that principle. In this regard, it will not be able to run apps already developed for products that run Android and instead they will have to be specifically designed for the device. Although its app capabilities will be limited the new feature makes the Nook Color the cheapest tablet-like device on the market with a price tag of $250.
