The Barnes & Noble Nook Color device has done quite well for itself in the e-book and tablet arena, and the overall experience has been enhanced with the introduction of the Android 2.2 Froyo software update which threw in support for Nook Apps. Having said that, the latest iteration of the Nook Color will sell with a slight difference compared to previously sold models – where only 1GB of storage space is made available to users despite it carrying 5GB of internal memory.
While technically all 5GB of it is still available, the newest iteration comes with split partitions courtesy of Barnes & Noble – where it will be split into 1GB and 4GB partitions, with the smaller portion for sideloaded content (that is, your music and or videos).
Fine print on the Barnes & Noble Nook Color website has this to say, “Approximately 5GB available to store content, of which up to 4GB may be reserved for content purchased from the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store.”
Good thing there is still the microSD memory card slot, so all is not lost as you potentially have another 32GB of storage space left to play with.
