I Took The Plunge..

and am glad I did. This is a fabulous device for $269 (Best Buy for the 5" model. Several things to note:

1. I rooted it (easy - see the posts over on XDA: [HTML]http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1141893&page=4[/HTML] Now you can do all kinds of things like backups (with Titanium Backup), remove the dumb Android screen lock, overclock, etc... Those familiar with rooting will understand - just check out the Nook Color development threads.

2. The battery life is very good - I use WiFi and Bluetooth simultaneously while playing a game or surfing the web and I get at least 12-14 hours at about 1/3 screen brightness.
It's very light and I don't get wrist fatigue.

3. I'm using Moon Reader in scrolling mode and it works well.

Can't wait for a custom ROM or MIUI
