From what I saw, Barnes & Noble is advertising the Nook Color as an e-book reader. I know it has an incorporated browser and LCD display, but I was wondering if that makes it an actual tablet... I mean, you can surf the web on a Kindle or on a Kobo e-reader as well, but nobody calls those devices tablets.
I don't consider the Nook Color a tablet. I consider it more to be an e-reader. Of course you can use a phone to do the same things and it's a phone and not a tablet. I guess it could be both? I'm not sure what qualifies something to be a tablet.
I think its primary function is as an ereader, but I know a few people who've bought a Nook Color to use it as an actual tablet. I think you have to root it, though.
I think it's a tablet.... just as the Kindle Color will be. They are both Wi-Fi and 3G so to me they are more of a tablet than an e-reader. You can buy a basic nool or Kindle and that would be an e-reader.
Yes, you can surf the web just like you can with a tablet. It's a cheaper version of a tablet. I won a Kindle Fire and my husband a Nook Color. I like them both. They are all the "tablet" that we need.
Yes it's a tablet. If you can go online then it is a tablet. You can even watch movies and listen to music. That means it's a tablet. I just don't think it's as expensive as the other tablets.
