Nook Touch Forums Added
After much talking and tons of requests and useful threads, we are happy to announce that the Barnes & Noble Nook Touch. In case you are not familiar, this is like a regular e-reader with the only difference that it runs on Android. This has to be the only device on Android that can last over a month on a single charge. This already has tons of development on it but due to the lack of a forum, its threads were scattered in the dev area of the Nook Color. The device is already rooted, market enabled, and a few people who have it are happily playing Angry Birds on it already.

If you have one already and would like to share your findings, impressions, and overall opinions regarding it, please do it in the new section.

This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following...
Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
