The NOOKcolor will run on a custom version of Google Android. At this point, I don't think many people know what that really means. Will the NOOKcolor run standard Android apps?
Here's one of the best features of the NOOKcolor:
NOOKcolor takes Barnes & Noble's exclusive LendMe™ technology one step further with the new LendMe™ App. With NOOKcolor, lend a book to a friend, plus now you can also ask to borrow one of their books. All LendMe™ books can be shared once with friends at no cost, for up to 14 days.You can learn more about the NOOKcolor here. I may need to buy one for the kids.
