Default Sonos Controller For Android Released

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/10/sonos-controller-for-android-with-voice-music-will-blow-you-away/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/10/...-blow-you-away/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"You can exhale Sonos fans, it's finally happening. The Sonos Controller for Android is official. After almost a year in development, the free WiFi music remote finally gives Sonos owners control over their whole-home audio system from any Android 2.1 and above device with a screen size of HVGA 320 x 480, WVGA 480 x 800 or WVGA 480 x 854."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/Trp7DhBbNUM&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Trp7DhBbNUM&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>If you've made the rather hefty investment in a Sonos music system (<a href="http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/102654/in-the-zone-the-sonos-zoneplayer-s5-system.html" target="_blank">reviewed here</a>), and you have an Android phone, this is a clever way to maximize the functionality of that system. You might not have a Sonos remote handy, but if your phone is nearby, you have an even better tool for controlling music all around your house. I really like the Sonos system, but it seems so expensive to me so I've never made the jump. Any Sonos owners out there that feel the investment is justified?</p>

Looking for two things here --
1) Will they release it to Nook Marketplace?? So I can use it on my Nook Color.
2) Hope it doesn't have the untolarable delay on startup that the ios version has. I spent the $350 - just to eliminate the delay and failure to connect issues I have with the ipod Touch.

It's funny, I think any music player that doesn't have the instant-functioning ability or IR kind of sucks. That's the #1 complaint I have about my Logitech Squeezebox; when I want to pause the music, I have to wait for the damn thing to wake up, re-establish a WiFi connection, THEN I can pause it. Completely stupid.
