Barnes & Noble Manufacturing 18,000 Nook Colors a day

Barnes & Noble is bumping up production of its Android-based Nook Color for the holiday season. According to B&N chairman Len Riggio they are manufacturing Nook Colors at a rate of 18,000 per day and load up a 747 every four to five days to bring devices to the U.S. from China.

NOOK SDK v1 Available Now for Download

While the NOOKcolor (we spent a week with the device, [click here] to see how it went) has already been rooted, and owners can now install games like Angry Birds onto it, the news for developers that the first version of the NOOK Software Developer Kit is now available should be good indeed. It will provide developers with the tools necessary to take full advantage of the eReader, and unlock any doors that had been previously unaccessible.

NOOKcolor Rooted!

Looks like those crazy cats over at XDA Forums are at it again, this time with everyone's favorite new color e-reader, NOOKcolor! And what did they do? They rooted it, of course, allowing the loading of, what else? Angry Birds! It seems to be the new anthem for "I GOT THIS WORKING!" There's great potential in this device, as we wrote earlier today in our final judgements on NOOKcolor over at A Week With NOOKcolor: 3rd Party Apps and Final Wrap-up. As XDA forum member IOMonster says, and I agree, "this thing has the potential to be an amazing device, we just gotta 'fix' it first."

B&N NOOK for Android Hits v2.4

While the original NOOK eReader has just received a pretty big update of its own, Barnes & Noble wasn't going to let their Android version of their popular eReader application miss its own update. So thankfully, the company has officially pulled the curtain off the latest update for the NOOK for Android eReader software. It's available now, and the software version is 2.4.

Barnes and Noble Releases “Love of Reading” TV Ad Spot for NOOKcolor

Bookstore Barnes and Noble release today their first big television advertisement for NOOKcolor, a device they're promoting as a device in which they've inserted what they say is "All [they] know about reading." It's all in there! Experience millions of books like never before (including video content inside recipes which, just so you know, wont be available until at least Q1 of next year. Relax with the magazines you love whenever and wherever, share with the ladies sitting next to you getting a perm, and read books to your kids (or have them read to them by the device!)

NOOKcolor Unboxed by SlashGear

Are you looking for a new, shiny, and color screen eReader this holiday season? Maybe you want to see how one, recently announced, stacks up when it's out of the box and handled? You're in luck, because the fine folks over at SlashGear managed to get some time on their hands to do just that. And, luckily for us, it's the new nook Color, from Barnes & Noble. The device, now featuring a color touchscreen, is still running Android under the hood. But, how does it fare out of the box?

A Bit of Extra Clarity for Would-Be Developers of NookColor Apps

So you'd like to develop some apps for the new NookColor, yes? Let's take a look at what you'll be looking at. In a recent conversation we had with Barnes & Noble representatives, they made it clear that the approach behind NookDeveloper will be very reading-centric. Very soon, B&N will be launching NookDeveloper to reach out to developers and content providers and show them love. In the next few weeks, the developer portal will be opening up, and inside will be an SDK emulator that you and your pals can work on to create and/or optimize your apps to work with the NookColor.

Barnes & Noble’s “Very Special Event” revealed to be launchpad for “Nook Color”

Hooray! It's real! Today's Barnes & Noble "Very Special Event" has turned out to be exactly what many were predicting: the presentation of the color version of the Nook, called correctly: "Nook Color." It's focused very hard on the books, magazines, and newspapers aspect, but opens up a bit as they do present the fact that it's got a web broswer, Office document viewer, games, sharing options through Twitter and Facebook, and even a few exciting apps.

Barnes & Noble May Release a COLOR NOOK

Oh shiny! It's always exciting to see a device transform from monotone to color. Remember way back when Gameboy did it? That was radical. Next Tuesday, a source telling CNET says, Barnes & Noble will be making a similar (in a way) announcement about their NOOK line. The NOOK Color may well be one that not only features a color display, but a touchscreen, too!
