Barnes and Noble Sells 3 Million Nook Colors

Last week Noah declared Barnes and Noble’s Nook Color a “Tablet for everyperson,” in his review of the e-reader— it seems like quite a few people agree. The retailer has reportedly sold a whopping three million of the e-book readers since its launch in October of last year, with 600,000-700,000 of those units estimated to have been sold within the first few months of this year.

The Nook Color is priced at just $250, putting it in the price range of many people who might not be able to shell out the $500+ for another tablet. The e-reader has an integrated web browser, games, and an audio player, and is also slated to get app support soon making it even closer to a traditional tablet, and a bigger contender in the tablet race as a whole.

Are any of you nook Color owners? Do you think it works as a tablet alternative?
