First, I've had my NookColor about 3 days and generally like it, even for the cost. A few quirks that the next version should fix but some nice features.
For me, I like it as a portable entertainment device and for that it's great. It already handles books and music -- I would like to see a better way to load movies (something that works with Netflix or Blockbuster, something) -- I love to read but sometimes I want to watch a movie. Games I can take or leave, that's why I have a smartphone .
Another thing I would like to see, on the book side, is a good atlas -- it strikes me this would be great for those of us who can read a map (i.e. don't need TomTom) and would like a map when driving down the road (Google maps doesn't work so well on a WiFi only device while driving -- and before I get nasty postings -- I'm referring to my wife looking at the map while I'm driving or vice versa).
Finally, I would like to see textbook access -- this to me is a natural for the classroom where students could look at the NookColor, read an assignment, then look back at the computer screen and work on the assignment.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
P.S. could someone add NookColor and WiFi to the spell check?

There's a thread for that:
