To be honest my GF is the tech person, but it seems that the NOOK updates itself.(It has done so a couple times for me already.) And the guy at B+N said that it was on it's way to being a tablet once it does update. As someone who reads a bunch anyways I cannot get enough of this thing. I love it. I would make love to it if it had a hole. I must have over 2500 pages worth of books on it, and it fits in a medium/large pocket.
Personally if I had to choose I would go with the Nook, but that is only because it seems to have a little more variety in function. It can connect to the web and Pandora, stores music/pictures. You can subscribe to Newspapers/magazines which automatically DL to the Nook the day they are published.
However, the awesomeness of 3g ability on the Kindle is undeniable.
That's only 3-5 books or so...is the memory expandable and how many e-books does it say it will hold?

I would go with the Nook Color, just so you can hack it!
The community at XDA is amazing. My Viewsonic gTablet is now up to Gingerbread because of that community.
