SmartphoneMag.com is reporting on its blog that a Barnes & Noble rep. has shown them a NOOKcolor e-Reader running Android 2.2. The update, which should be available in January, will provide users access to the Android Market, Android’s home screen, and will include multi-touch capabilities like pinch-to-zoom. Apps downloaded from the market will be saved to the SD card. The update also brings a switchable interface that will toggle between e-Reader or tablet mode. Not bad, right for $249? If you haven’t played with the NOOKcolor yet at your local B&N, give it a shot — it’s a nice little 7-inch screen device (see below).
