    Barnes & Noble continues to blur the line between e-book reader and tablet on the Nook Color with the addition of new third-party apps and interactive content.
    Some of the better-known apps set to hit the Nook Color’s 7-inch color touch screen come from Fandango, Evernote and Seesmic, the last one of which won’t even be supported on BlackBerry OS much longer. And although Angry Birds is likely to reign supreme, there are some new casual gaming apps coming to Nook Apps, including that time old classic, Hangman.
    Additionally, the Nook Color is already quite popular for its interactive books and content available for children, and the younger demographic will likely be delighted by upcoming interactive books based on Disney’s Cars franchise as well as more from Dr. Seuss.
    It’s still questionable whether or not these new features can give Apple’s iPad a run for its money. After all, the iPad is still the global tablet leader. But for consumers who only want a tablet for reading books and magazines with some app features available, the $249 price point is nearly unbeatable.
    The Nook Color has been a big hit for B&N, expectedly or unexpectedly amongst female consumers, mainly for its aforementioned low price point and relatively good support for Android. Its status as a tablet continued to solidify with the upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) and the launch of the Nook Apps store in April.
