Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Does Nook Color have Skype application?

i'm wondering that too. i just asked a similar question in a different post and discovered yours. While the NC doesn't have a camera or microphone, I thought that I read somewhere that among its specs, that is latent Skype ability.

 

i'm waiting for a techie to respond.

Can't seem or haven't seen the relevant discussion board. Do you have a link to this specific topic? Thanks.

Huh?  Josie posted both of the NOOKColor discussions boards.  Both would seem to be a relevant place to ask the question.  :smileywink:  

 

And for the record, there is no Skype application for NOOKColor and only B&N knows if there ever will be.

They'd have to turn on Bluetooth before there is a chance at getting Skype  running.

Check the XDA boards. Some of the devs were working on this but I'm not sure how far along they got. You would of course have to root.
