The launch of the new Nook Color eReader is no longer a secret since Barnes & Noble had themselves given it away by accidentally revealing a related accessory in its stores. Now we are further hearing about a new application from the book publisher that will be targeted at kids.
Called the Nook Kids, the application is set to come with close to 12,000 titles that will appeal to the very young crowd. Most of these titles are said to be interactive and will contain instances like a page full of dropping blueberries that can be popped with a tap, etc. In short, this app also confirms that the new Nook Color will include a comprehensive color touchscreen.
Also, this application will not just be limited to the Nook Color eReader but will also be available for other devices including the Apple iPad from later this year.
