The Nook with colour is here and positions Barnes and Noble one step ahead of Amazon and the Kindle. This new device is based on Android 2.1 and uses a 7 inch colour LCD display. Connectivity to Facebook and Twitter is included and one of the more impressive features, it can play video.

This device seems to be almost an Android tablet (I say almost because there's no Android Marketplace) and if it had a phone function, we'd have a reason to carry two seven inch products around at the same time.
