    So I have the Nook 3g/wifi and its great. I pre-ordered mine and got it in the 2nd shipment on 12/23/09 cutting it awful close as it was my Christmas gift. Quite honestly its my most cherished electronic device. Its currently wearing Decalgirl.com (great site for skins for everything) Starry Night skin. I was tempted to maybe buy the new Nook simple but sometimes newer is not always better. So share your thoughts and e-readers if you got em.

    The Nook Color is one sexy e-Reader. My mom has one and I'd love to have one too. But I'd root it and put on Honeycomb. [​IMG]

    My mom has the Nook Color. She let me Put Android 2.3.3 Cyanogen Mod 7 on it with full market access, Netflix, Full Video acceleration, all the apps and games in the world, Snes emu, game boy advance emu, nintendo 64 emulator etc etc. The Nook Color is the best E-reader available. I might go pick one up for my self for an epic portable Emulator. (Did I mention that bluetooth can be used to sync a wii remote?)

    Nook color is more of a tablet. That is probably my least wanted device. I prefer my e ink. I don't consider it a book reader at all may as well just read books on my CPU.

    I love the skin it looks wicked. Like KirbyBoy I use my DS (DSi XL) as an E-book reader. I was looking at the Kindle but when I weighed up the pros and cons I realised I was better off upgrading to a DSi XL (I already had a DS lite) even though with a new flash cart and case etc it cost nearly double what the Kindle would have cost me. I don't think the Nook is available over here (Europe).
    What book formats can it handle?

    The Nook Color's OS is Android. Always has been. It's just covered up by the Nook UI.

    There is a program called calibre with that you can format any type of format to your book reader. Its great. Skin came from Decalgirl.com they make skins for everything and have a huge selection. They are really high quality skins. If you like them on facebook or twitter they generally have deals.

    One of my friends has a Nook Color with all the bells and whistles hacked in. It's a fun little device. Shame they won't let me attempt to put any emulators on it (they continuously gripe about how it can't natively play .gba or .snes files, however)... But everything else? Awesome. They've got Angry Birds on it and play it religiously, almost.

    I've never been allowed to borrow it, but I've used it at their house and it's a really nice system overall.

    If I want to play games id use a gaming system. I wouldn't buy a book reader for the games it can play.
