We knew it was coming and, as of now, owners of the Barnes & Noble Nook Color should be receiving notices that their devices are ready to drop those training wheels and run some proper apps. Flash web browsing, downloads, games, e-mail, it's all here."

They’re only £111 here in the UK. That's half the price of a netbook. It might not do everything, but the ops point was that everything is not what you always want.

That’s like buying an SUV just to drive to the shops and back. It’s unnecessary and it just bogs you down. The last thing I want when I’m reading is the Internet just being 'there', yearning to be looked at. Update notifications flashing, e-mail coming in. An endless stream of distractions. That’s not an environment conducive to reading.
