News has it that Barnes & Noble have stopped shipments of their successful NOOKcolor Android tablet ereader. This color reader has seen great coverage in the Android developer community because of its enticing hardware and locked nature. While Barnes & Noble have intended this device to be used strictly for reading, sharing, and purchasing books (and down the line apps for reading as well,) it's been met with some fast moving code tricks and hacks that have allowed avid coders to break its system wide open
. When open, this ereader becomes more of a fabulous looking, nicely sized, fully functional Android tablet. What's all this got to do with shipments?
