Got a HD+ before the weekend. Had it rooted within 30 minutes...
I'm perfectly happy running rooted stock. As long as I can get the apps I want on it.
I bought it mainly to be able to read magazines easier, and also the odd catalog now and then. I love the 7" Tablet, but I felt I needed something a little bit bigger for magazines and some other books like travel guides and cook books that I happened to have.
