I would get one if (as mentioned above) it is a fully functional tablet and not neutered. I am also curious as to battery life. Did I miss that in the press release?

Eight hours with wifi off. I am more interested in it access to the Android market. And what flavor or Android its running and if that will upgraded to Gingerbread

According to this: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/...rts-at-249.ars, the NOOKcolor gets only 8 hours of battery life with WiFi off. I would find this acceptable. It does appear to be fully functional, as long as you don't need 3G. To me, 3G isn't worth an extra $250.
