Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of the NOOKcolor or NOOK, Barnes & Noble’s (simply B&N from here on) ebook readers. The NOOKcolor, which debuted in November 2010, is a multitouch VividView color screen. The original NOOK, which first went on sale late in 2009, features an E Ink reading display that bears a remarkable resemblance to paper.

The NOOKcolor resembles a tablet like the iPad or Samsung Galaxy in many ways, but B&N has intentionally focused it as an ereading device without the full set of features to be found in a tablet. This focuses attention on the reading experience of books, newspapers, and magazines while keeping the price down. The NOOKcolor is an attempt to balance the features of the tablet with the immersive experience of reading. The NOOKcolor can hold approximately 6,000 books out-of-the-box. (The original NOOK can hold approximately 1,500 books.) In other words, if you read one book per week, your NOOKcolor can hold enough books for almost 116 years of reading, and if you add a microSD card to your NOOKcolor, you can easily hold enough books for many lifetimes!
