First, I love Nookstudy so far! Is there a Blackberry App in the works?
Of course we primarily study on our pcs and macs- We don't have a good study app on our phone yet!
Blackberry and Android phones have keyboards and touch screens. I currently study on mine with an app from your major competitor, but they haven't done a good job making textbooks available.
ps. I'm sure the i-crowd would like to have it on the iPhone too... even if it's a little harder to use.

We're glad to hear it! We don't have a Blackberry or iPhone app yet. We are definitely exploring mobile platforms for the next versions of NOOKstudy. We are working with publishers on content optimization and file size first to make this possible. Thanks for the feedback and stay tuned!

Please let it be soon! Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to finally see eTextbooks, because it means that my texts are now only as heavy as my laptop, but I can only imagine how awesome it would be to simply be able to bring my iPhone 4 to class, talk about bringing 5-10lbs of books to about 2-5 ounces! Granted most mobile displays are small, and would not be convienient, I still think it would be worth it for the quality ones. Also, is there any solution for the instance - say your computer has to go to the shop (for instance the screen cracks, or the case for the 1st gen macbooks) How will a student have access to his or her eBook? Better printing or mobility (such as iPhone) would be an excellent alternative I believe.

If you guys don't come out with this soon, you are going to be left in the technology dust, so to speak. I bought a Nook Color for the sole purpose of having my textbooks on the go. I bought them from another source because I couldn't load them on my Nook or my Nook app for iPhone. I use them on both, just had to buy them from somewhere that allowed me to print more than 149 pages to pdf so I could sideload them to my devices. There are already schools where you can by an etextbook pre-loaded on a Kindle and the Kindle comes with it. The Nook is so much better than the Kindle but your refusal to develop is going to hurt you in the long run. I hope you catch up with the competition and make it to where we can read our books in a Nook Study app and on our Nooks, but if you don't, I'll just buy my etextbooks elsewhere. I really hope I don't have to continue doing this! I have two years left in my MBA program and would love to utilize your product, but with the current business model that you are operating under, you are ostrecizing early adopters and are going to lose customers. B&N is a great company, I hope that doesn't happen!
