Barnes & Noble has announced the addition of apps, games, and music for their Android-based Nookcolor. It will come pre-loaded with Pandora radio, Quickoffice, and games like Sudoku, puzzles, and chess. You’ll be able to shop for other apps – like Angry Birds, Lonely Planet, apps to keep you organized, apps for kids, and more – right from your Nookcolor. They’ve also added full-featured mail and the Nookfriends social features. Finally, they’ve added enhanced web with video. Now your dedicated e-reader can also function as a tablet. The Nookcolor is still $249. People who already own the Nookcolor should expect a firmware update to version 1.2.0 to add these features to their Nookcolor.
