Nook Color

As expected, Barnes & Noble unveiled a Nook with color today. Android enabled, as before.

The NOOKcolor features a 7-inch backlit IPS display and capacitive touchscreen. It weighs in at just under a pound and comes with 8GB of built-in memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card. It also features a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and a micro-USB port. It also has built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Barnes & Noble rates battery life of up to eight hours with Wi-Fi turned off. While primarily an e-reader and web browser, the NOOKcolor can also playback audio files and *.MP4 video. It supports EPUB, PDF and TXT files, as well as Microsoft Office file formats.

Why, though, did they have to use such ugly and weird capitalization? I'm a cranky old man. Get off my lawn. Excuse me, my LaWn.
