Welcome to a super amazing extended review of the brand-spanking-new NOOKcolor.

Inside you'll see the slick box it comes in plus the accessories and feel of the device itself.

Hands-On Around the Web with the Nook Color [Plus Barnes&Noble Press Release]

Two things: let's talk about what it feels like to use this device, AND, lets look at the full press release on the Nook Color just released by Barnes & Noble a moment ago. Our pals at CrunchGear are there at the event with commentary, Engadget too, plus a couple other friends are sure to pop up along the way. It's thin, it's got a rubbery back, and it's got a loop to put a chain through. It's nice to hold, very bright and easy on the eyes, and also you can read books on it!
