Nano Fondle: Barnes & Noble NookColor
Picking up the NookColor today elicited these reactions from me:
1) Wow, this thing is thin!
2) Wow, this is well-built!
3) Wow, that’s a hell of a screen!
4) Wow, it’s only $249?
But is it worth buying?

NookColor Type Crime
Ugh. Book designers will rip out their hair looking at the NookColor.
Italics scream off the page, as if the sizes have been mixed up.
It’s a Dan Brown book. Who knows? Maybe that was in his contract, given the way he, um, writes.

NOTE (May 18, 2011): Google Books PDF On HTC Flyer
Google Books is a special interest of mine. Primarily because there’s a lot of them I want to read. And I’m not exaggerating: I have about 2,000 PDFs of them downloaded (so far).
So tablet hardware has to be able to handle these PDFs to be of any real use to me.
Today I got to test Google Books PDFs on a NookColor, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and an Apple iPad running iOS 4.2.1.
Which one could handle the job?
