7 / 9
Barnes & Noble's NookColor succeeds in combining much of the readability of the E-Ink based e-readers with the speed, customisation, and graphical advantages of the LCD-based e-reading apps on competing touch screen devices, phone or tablet. And at US$249, NookColor even has limited viability as a reasonably priced, contract-free tablet for those who prize reading and Web surfing above playing games and downloading apps.
