Nook Night in Little Rock

May 7, 2012 Timothy Tablet Technology

Nook Night will be on Thursday, May 10, from 6-8 p.m. at the Books-a-Million bookstore on McCain Boulevard in North Little Rock. The store will be showing their full line of Nook devices and you’ll have plenty of opportunity for hands-on testing and asking questions.

Currently all of the Nook e-readers are on sale for Mother’s Day. I tested the low-end Nook Color while at the store. The Color is an Android-based tablet. Navigation was simple and the screen resolution good for a device currently selling for $149.

The salesperson informed us that the device could be attached to a desktop with a USB mini cable to transfer favorite photos and PDFs. They were unsure of the ability to transfer .MP4 movies.

One drawback to the device is that while Android based, any apps you desire must be downloaded through the Nook store and not the larger Android store. So, you can likely download the Angry Birds game, but perhaps not some lesser-known app that might fill a particular need.

Again, if you are interested in the Android-based Nook e-readers, put Nook Night on your calendar.
