At least with the NC, I can either get my de-DRMed books or root it and install the Kindle app on it (I think).
Anyway, this is good information. Thanks!
I really love my nook but for $100 more the Samsung is really a better choice than the nook.
That said the nook is a good choice if you are willing to root your nook or better yet ROM your nook you can get close to the performance of a Samsung. (except for graphic intensive apps).
On my ROMed nook I can easily download calibre content*
either with my web browser or through Alkdio or Moon eReader apps. For the Kindle app I have to download the books through a browser. All you have to do for Alkdio/Moon is point the app to the web servers IP:PORT address and the rest will work flawlessly. I love this because I don't have to filter through books on my local nook, I can use calibres tag engine to search for a book I want to read.
If Aldiko and Moon are released on the nook market you will not need to root your nook.
I have calibre web server running
