Nook Color Now Shipping. Nook 3G Update Coming Next Week. #nookcolor

Fans of the popular first generation Nook who also ordered the new Nook Color will be pleased to know that the device is officially shipping. Compared to the first-gen Nook as well as several other big name e-readers (including the Kindle), the Nook Color almost appears like a tablet computer of sorts. With Android 2.1 being the main powerhouse behind the 8GB of memory, 7″ 1024 x 600 display, and WiFi b/g/n, it almost doesn’t fit into an “e-reader” category.

Nonetheless, it’s a mighty fine device. However, it will be interesting to see how moving away from e-ink to LCD fares with the hungrier book worms of the crowd. In particular, the battery life has tanked from 10 days to a mere 8 hours. Not to mention, LCD isn’t nearly as easy to read as the more “paper-like” e-ink.

In other news: Nook 3G owners can expect an update to drop next week which will bring among other things, faster page turn times, “Reading Now”, and customized library organization.
