Barnes and Noble’s Nook colour will have access to Android Apps and a web browser with Flash, PC World is reporting.The news comes from a listing on HSN that says the updates are coming in April.

The Nook colour already runs on Android, but users only have access to a handful of apps like the Nook store and a media player. But some intrepid developers did come up with a hack to get Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the device.

This will make the wifi-only Nook colour an almost fully-featured Android tablet. And at $250, it’s a much cheaper (although less powerful) alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Tab or Motorola Xoom.
