This application is similar to the functionality of Amazon Kindle and is equipped with a free sample segments of books. There are more than 500,000 free books, and what to look for free eBook preview.
Probably the most interesting feature is the ability to Nook borrow your book corner for other users. This is the function and the Kindle does not really give a sense of ownership of real books on the shelf that you can borrow a friend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the security software in Android a scam?
Is LookOut security software in Android is a scam? I heard in the reviews that some said it's a scam and it's difficult to remove., is that true? What is the best, safe, and effective security software for my Android 2.3?
Android is the most popular mobile OS in addition to iOS at the moment, but it’s one of the most insecure platform as well. A case in point is San Francisco based software vendor Coverity released a report last year saying that there were a huge number of bugs in Android kernel, among which 88 are high-risk defects. The latest is called Auth Token bug, security researchers have found that in Android 2.3.3 and earlier version there is an Auth Token leakage. When the user log onto a Wi-Fi network using Client Login, the Auth Token contains unencrypted password can be obtained by the hackers easily which put user private data at risk including Google Calendar, Google contacts, Twitter and Facebook account.
So it’s absolutely necessary for Android users to install security apps to protect their sensitive data. However, there are a wide range of them – some better than others, and all come with different feature. Here we introduce some best yet free security apps for Android phones.
Webroot Mobile Security Basic
Webroot is very popular among Android users. It comes in both paid and free versions. Paid version has more features, however their free versions covers some of the basic capabilitiy like block and remove malicious apps, protect contacts and passwords, call and SMS blocking and secure web browsing etc.
Lookout Mobile Security
Lookout is committed to mobile security, their security app for android lets you backup and restore your private data so you do not have to worry that any of them goes missing. It also scans your Android phone for malware to keep them out of your phone. In the meantime, Lookout releases a mobile lost and found app called Plan B. If you read my blog often, you will remember I introduced it in my previous post. Basically you can install it to your Android Smartphone and show its location on Google Maps.
Lookout mobile security comes in two versions, free and premium. Generally, the free version provides the basic security service for your phone and in most cases it’s good enough. You do not need to upgrade to the paid version until you need extra features.
Sprint Android Phones: HTC Hero vs Samsung Intercept?
I'm getting a Sprint phone with Android software. I've read a lot of reviews on both the Hero and the Intercept (which is supposedly replacing the Moment, it's a little bit smaller but has an LCD screen instead of the Moment's AMOLED).
I went to the store and played around with both of them... One thing I noticed is that the Intercept's screen is definitely not as good as the Hero's beautifully sharp one. The Intercept's touch screen also seemed to be less responsive, slower and needed more pressure than the Hero's. But, it also has a physical QWERTY keyboard which the Hero lacks. The lady who worked at the Sprint store recommended not buying the Hero because she said many people have reported problems, but I know that HTC has released several software updates and fixes. I used to have the Samsung Eternity (for AT&T), which drove me crazy because the touch screen was so slow. Physical/touchscreen keyboard isn't the deciding factor for me, though, since I have used both and gotten used to them.
Any thoughts from people who have used either phone?
Further upgrades aren't really a concern for me, as long as 2.1 works ok.
If further upgrades aren't really a concern, then I would choose HTC Hero.
The Samsung Intercept has only EV-DO Rev 0, which is the lower end of 3G speed. EV-DO Rev A, which is the higher end of 3G, is found on HTC Hero and Samsung Moment. EVDO Rev A is 25% faster at downloading and up to 800% faster at uploading.
The screen resolution is another downside for the Intercept. HTC Hero has a 320x480 screen resolution where the Intercept has a 240x400 screen resolution. Some application requires the 320x480 resolution (which is considered to be the minimum for Android powered smart-phones) and other applications may not run well with the lower resolution found on the Intercept.
Also, a side note. If you do go for the HTC Hero, there is a large following of people dedicated to rooting the Hero and allowing additional features to the phone and some have added 2.2 features to their 2.1 Hero.
Should I get the iPod Touch 4 or the Samsung Galaxy player 4?
I was going to get the new touch, but saw mediocre reviews on the camera, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to get a new one (I have the ipod touch 3g). I haven't found any reviews on the Galaxy Wifi 4.0, but it looks intriguing, with its 3.2 megapixel camera and Android software. Anyone know anything about this?
i do. the Samsung galaxy player 4.0 has the ability to switch from .3,1,2,2.5, and3.2mp in the camera, has the ability to change brightness of the picture the picture, image stabilizer, auto focus, different custom settings for different scenes depending on what your taking a picture on and where, the ability to easily make a panorama, to add frames, effects like sepia water color negative and black and white, change the exposure, and image quality in a sleek easy to use interface make the Samsung galaxy players camera much more useful and just better than the iPod touches camera. (plus the galaxy players camera is 5 times the resolution of the iPod touches camera)
plus any specification the iPod has the galaxy player doubles it or in the case of graphics triples it for example (ram, screen color production and viewing angles, speakers are superb even louder than an ipad, and you should get a longer battery life )
Which is the best Android app?
I need help on deciding which Antivirus Android app is the best, reliable, accurate, effective, and safe to use. Webroot, Norton, Mcafee, AVG, LookOut, or anything other antivirus software you would recommend. I saw some of the reviews in the Android Market that is about LookOut. It said that LookOut is a scam, is this true?
What is the best and safe cleaning software for Android that is similar to Ccleaner used in Windows and Mac computer? I want to free up space and clean browser history.
What is the best task killer you would recommend? Is it the Advanced Task Killer or anything else?
I want it to be effective, stable, and secure.
Best Verizon Android phone right now?
It is looking like I will be going to Verizon for my cell phone provider.
I have T Mobile right now, and have the Galaxy S Vibrant (the first one, not the second one). It's been a great phone; I love it but don't really want to go with a Galaxy S this time. I want to try a HTC or another great brand (as long as it's reliable).
The things I care about are:
*Camera- I use my camera all the time; I have 8 mp now and definitely don't want to down grade
*That it's Android- I have used an iPhone before and definitely want to stay with the Android software
*Decent Key Board- I don't mind a physical keyboard but since I text a lot I need something decent
I look up reviews of the different phones but to me they all seem pretty great, but none stand out.
What do you think and why?
Umm... I want a phone, not a tablet.
Also my price range is going to be -0. I do need a budget of some sort.
I found some of the best Verizon Android phones now is the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX 4G, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G, and the HTC Rezound 4G. And you want to try another brand?, so get the DROID RAZR MAXX or the Rezound. You can read user reviews and buy them with contract (new, upgrades & add a line) for cheap prices online at AmazonWireless, the most trusted U.S. store online for Verizon Wireless carrier. Check them out.

For a Verizon Android phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard, you may get the Motorola DROID 4 4G, check it out.
