Here are the unboxing photos.

The box opens at the bottom to reveal the NOOKcolor and the accessories
My first look at the NOOKcolor in its protective packing sleeve
(that's me taking the photo in the reflection)
Still unwrapped NOOKcolor with its accessories. The accessories are a wall charger and a USB cable that is used both to charge the NOOKcolor by plugging into the wall charger and to connect to a computer. A quick start guide is also included.

The NOOKcolor has to be charged before first use. When it's plugged in a video starts that welcomes you to the NOOKcolor and explains some of the features and helps you through initial setup. I connected to both my B&N account and my home WiFi network easily, which is necessary to register the NOOKcolor.
My NOOKcolor was fully charged quickly. My guess is that is was almost fully charged when I received it. I had no trouble navigating and found it highly intuitive. I was able to move Adobe Digital Edition (ADE) books to it with ease via the USB connection to my laptop. I'd read about some issues with ADE. I had no problems. I have not tried emailing myself a book to add it to my files. So far my experience with the NOOKcolor has been excellent. the screen is crisp and navigation is easy. I'll write more when I've used it for a while. I still need to purchase a microSDHC card for it. The NOOKcolor can use up to a 32GB card. Each GB holds approximately 1,000 books. That would be approximately 32,000 books. Can you say 'Nirvana?"
