Refurbished NOOK Color for $169.00 + Free Shipping!

I’m a Barnes & Noble affiliate. I make a little money if you buy a Barnes & Noble product from my website. I love B&N and I’m proud to be associated with them. That being said, I want you to know I don’t make anything from this deal, but it’s too good not to tell you about it!

You can purchase a certified Barnes & Noble refurbished NOOK Color for just $169.00 and get free shipping!  It comes with 90 days of complementary phone support and a one year limited warranty! This is the real deal. It actually ships from Barnes & Noble! This special offer is $80.00 off the normal retail price of $249.00.

I’m a former Nokia repair technician and I can tell you this… Nokia’s refurbished phones were tested at a higher standard of quality control than their new phones. I don’t know if the NOOK Color refurbishment process is similar to Nokia’s, but I’m guessing it is. Based on my experience, I would purchase a refurbished product any day of the week and be confident it will be as good, if not better, then a new one!

If you would like to know more about this offer, please “click here.” I own a NOOK Color and I love it!

Yes, I Do Use My eReader!

I was recently asked if I really used my Nook Color enough to justify the expense. In one word, YES! Right now I’ve got 58 books stored to it and dozens of business PDF papers. When I’m home I read (I’m one of those strange people who disconnected their TV because I got sick and tired of the advertisements and slanted news covereage). In lieu of television, I can use my Nook to go to the internet and watch Hulu and YouTube if I wish.

At work I use my Nook to keep my Things-To-Do list up to date and check emails. I can stop by a McDonalds or Starbucks if I need a Wi-Fi Hotspot. My Nook is also a great MP3 player when I’m in the office. I can check local news and weather forecasts as well. Oh, I can also read a book during my break!

Do I consider all these things worth $249.00? Absolutely!

Nook Color Upgraded With Android 2.2 & Flash Video

I’ve been playing with my Nook Color for the past few days. Last Monday, 4/25/2011, Barnes & Noble pushed out a major software update to their Nook Color eReaders. Now my eReader has apps! I can listen to Pandora and surf the web even easier than before! There’s something new called “Nook Friends” where people can share their love of reading and share their ebooks too! You can connect with others, share opinions on books you are reading, and rate books you’ve read!

This software update (version 1.2.0) also included Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash Video 10.1 which, among other things,  allows you to view YouTube…. (20 minutes later)… Yes, YouTube works perfectly! And to top things off, B&N opened their Nook Color App Store with an initial offering of 125 apps to choose from. Outstanding!

Oh, did I mention you can read books (and magazines and newspapers) on the Nook Color as well! 😉
