Here we go:
Barnes & Noble is trying to outperfom the Kindle competition by upgrading their Nook, which is now boosting a full color display and some other new features. We will have a list of features below but the main question we have is B&N was able to put a stop to some of the negative things that were mentioned in the “Normal” Nook review, such as multiple shut-downs of the device for no apparent reason or the lack of costumer service. As there are no comments on this from B&N (please point us into the right direction if you know of one), we will assume that they will try harder on the new generation of the Nook.
Anyway, here are the features. Our favorite feature is the ability to slide through children books, which is something you will love if you have a little version of yourself at home. Unfortunatly they also tend to love to play with electronics, so maybe get a plastic casing…
