Listen to streaming music from Pandora on your Nook Color.

The Nook Color e-reader comes preloaded with several applications, including Pandora, a free streaming radio application. If you already have a Pandora account, you can use the same login information on your Nook. If you don't have an account you can create one. Once started, you can use all of the same features available on the Web version of Pandora, such as creating stations and skipping tracks.
