    you can not add apps unless you root. Barnes and Noble will be adding thier own app store early next year.

    Rooting this thing is INCREDIBLY easy, I just did it last night. Took about 5 minutes after downloading the file.

    General Instructions:

    1. download a file
    2. unzip it
    3. write it to a microSD card
    4. insert card into Nook
    5. connect Nook to PC via USB, it will boot from the SD card
    6. let it boot up
    7. disconnect USB, remove SD card.
    8. done

    Don't be scared, find the Nook Color Wiki thing and follow the instructions exatcly, boom - rooted. After that, you'll have the Android Market, GMail and will be able to download apps to the NC.

    I took the plunge last Friday... holding my breath the whole time...
    and SUCCESS... I LOVE IT...
    the only hard thing was understanding how to move the files onto the sd card..
    Problem is most smart computer geeks don't get down to elementary level on directions.. assuming.( wrongly) that the masses know even basic stuff like unzipping.... but after watching a video on the process.. I was successful. I am sooooo HAPPY.. love it. :)
