Welcome to a super amazing extended review of the brand-spanking-new NOOKcolor. Let me begin by assuring you that the name is "NOOKcolor" all one word rather than "Nook Color" as I'd originally assumed in posts of the past. Then, let me let you know that this is not the first multi-post review we've done of a bit of gear - search for the term "A Week with" - our most recent project being the HTC HD7. Now we move on to this NOOKcolor, Barnes and Noble's full-color eReader, on its way out on the delivery trucks as we speak, just in time for the holiday season. This first post we'll discuss a bit about the hardware - how the item feels, works, and functions in the real world.
