I just bought a NookColor and I have to say I'm rather impressed. It's the perfect size and runs fairly smoothly. It lacks the apps but B&A said they'd release a limited App store, that'll do I guess. Anyways, does anyone think Apple may release a similarly sized model of the iPad next year, maybe with a comparable price ($300-$400)? I'd prefer an iPad but the current ones are too big and the price just doesn't seem worth it for an item I'd be using primarily as an e-reader. Anyone think this is a possibility or am I in the clouds?
