Nook Color hit 1 million for Android 2.2

Barnes & Noble announced today that 1 million applications were downloaded from its marketplace in the first week of availability.
The top five paid NOOK Apps are Angry Birds, Drawing Pad, Solitaire, Aces Jewel Hunt and Astraware Fliq Calendar and Fliq Notes were the most popular free applications in the store.

Barnes & Noble released a major update to its $250 7-inch e-reader late last month. The update delivered a customized version of Android 2.2 (Froyo) and Flash support when users took to the Web. The free update also included access to more than 125 free and paid apps. The company said today that about half the available applications sell for $2.99 or less, while the “vast majority” can be purchased for $5.99 or less.

Barnes & Nook Color e-reader has made it into the headlines when the hacking community showed us that a comparatively cheaper Android Tablet is hiding behind this thin eBook Reader. We have even seen the Angry Birds running on it.The good folks at the hacking community have indeed told us how to get it rooted to have the Android Market and the stuff in the Android 2.2 running. Many who tried this hard way of getting the Froyo enabled in their Nook Color.

Enabling Froyo needed disabling the device’s normal battery monitoring processing. However, it is this normal battery monitoring that helps the Nook Color to find if the batteries are overheating and if so to prevent them from going to a critical stage.Many rooting and hacking guides for the Nook Color had a big banner warning for the less adventurous to wait till an easier way is developed. It came out at last, it seems. Barnes & Noble has recently confirmed the Nook Color will be getting the Android 2.2 treatment in January.
