We think the Nook colour’s Android update was a smart move by Barnes & Noble. It’s the perfect tablet for casual users and comes at a perfect price.But Engadget has learned that new Nook colour tablets will only allow users to load 1 GB worth of content.

The Nook colour only has 5 GB of storage, but Barnes & Noble is forcing users to use at least 4 GB of that for books, magazines, and apps downloaded from its online store.

We don’t see the point of making the Nook into a tablet and then limiting how much movies, music, and photos users can add.

Note: This only affects new Nook colour models. You can tell if the tablet has been tweaked if there’s a blue dot on the box.
