In a few short weeks, the NookColor sold “nearly a million units,” at least according to B&N, making it the company’s best-selling product. Launched in October, the NookColor is a hackable Android tablet originally designed to only read B&N’s line of ebooks and play a few games. Since its launch, however, it’s become a hacker’s plaything and a popular alternative to the do-it-all iPad.
In short, the NookColor could be B&N’s ultimate weapon against Kindle hedgemony and has definitely put them firmly in the ereader race. Full PR after the jump.
