Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble announced today that its new "reader's tablet," the $250 touch-screen Nook Color, has begun shipping slightly ahead of schedule to customers who preordered the device. Some may even receive their units as early as today.

As for us, well, we picked up a review unit the other day at the company's headquarters in New York and put it through its paces over the last few days. While we still think Barnes & Noble has some work to do with adding more apps, all in all, the Nook Color is a very capable e-reader that's well slotted between more affordable e-ink e-readers like the Kindle and original Nook, and the larger, more versatile iPad. That's the quick take, but there's a whole lot more to it than that, of course.
