Navigating the NookColor

Tags: , ,


The NookColor is the newest ereader to join the market.  This article highlights the key features of the NookColor that allows you to judge whether you want to get it or not.

The NookColor has power button on the left side of the ebook reader device.  You will need to hold the button for about 2 or 3 seconds in order to turn it on.  The slot for the headphone jack is on the top of the device towards the right hand side.  It’s the standard 3.5mm audio jack that will accommodate most headphones, ear buds, skull candy, etc.  On the right hand side you will find the volume controls.  It’s located in the upper right hand side.  The “+” button will increase the volume and the “-” button will decrease it.  In the middle of the ereader is a very large 7 inch color touch screen.  This is where you’ll be reading all your ebooks and where you’ll be doing your navigation.  You’ll notice on this ereader that there are no buttons on the front side.  This gives the ebook reader a sleek design.  Under this large touch screen is a black bar with a lower case “n” in the middle.  This represents the home button.  If you press and hold this button for a second while the NookColor is in sleep mode, your NookColor will “wake up.”  However, if your NookColor is already on and you press this button, you will be escorted to the home screen.  This is how you get to the home page.

On the bottom left hand corner of the ereader device is the microUSB port.  This port allows you to connect cords to the NookColor for charging or linking to a personal computer.  On the back of the device is a place where you can add a microSD memory card.  The NookColor comes with 8 GB of memory.  This is a large amount of memory that can hold thousands of books.  If you need more storage space, it’s easy to upgrade your memory amount by adding in a card in the microSD memory card slot.

In order to protect your investment you need to get Nook color cases or nook color covers.
