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?

There’s plenty of pictures to be had, and even a video, which you can watch below. In the initial hands-on, we take a look at the hardware, but only briefly. Of course, the review of the device is coming soon, so you’ll have to stay tuned as we wait for the official ruling on the device. Until then, check out the full unboxing and hands-on with the nook Color through the source link below.
