Memo To Barnes & Noble: Unlock NookColor!

It’s not “rooting”, it’s openness

It’s possible to design unlocking techniques that protect the integrity of the mobile network, the rights of content providers, and the rights of application developers, while at the same time giving users choice. Users should demand no less.

One of the biggest missteps Barnes & Noble made was deviating from the DRM everyone else was using with ePub.

Now they’re compounding that mistake by locking up the NookColor.

Instead of making people go through torment to gain control of a device they legally and legitimately purchased, it would be in Barnes & Noble’s greater interests to encourage such unlocking.

And hey, B&N, if you don’t get additional eBook customers from that, look to your non-standard DRM and, perhaps, your rotten post-sale customer support too.

In the meantime, you could be making a hell of a lot more money from the NookColor as an open device.
