Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of the nook sales where from folks who wanted a cheap tablet.

At work everyone knows I'm an eBook fan over the years I've had one or two folks ask me about my sony/kindle. However when folks heard how I turned the nook into a android tablet. I had several folks come over to check it out.

Kind of funny really, it just shows how viable 7" tablets are.

NOOKcolor games and apps

Because the nook books off of the SD Micro Card by default it makes bricking the nook virtually impossible. Also developers have created bootable images that auto root your device. It's called autonooter and the process is very easy to do. The hardest part is making a bootable images, and those instructions are in detail.

The nook has proven to be a viable tablet and as such has gotten developers from the market to make updates to their apps to play nice with the nook.

Also here is the dev community to the nook color
http://nookdevs.com/Portal:NookColor
You will see it is quite active, even more so than the cruz, and PocketBook.

Thanks Lemurion, =X=, and boswd.

Ok, I've replaced the "lacks substantial developer community" con with "currently lacks support as shipped from Barnes & Noble for installing new apps." I've also elevated NOOKcolor from "fair" to "good" for the apps and games factor.

What would you say is the best link I could use for installing instructions that I mention in this pro (added for the NOOKcolor regarding apps and games): "Android developer community has produced apps and instructions for installing them."

I don't know whether you can use these, 3 examples minimum/mid/largest font possible on the Gen3.

Hi GeoffC, thank you for those. Yeah, it's the knowing whether I can use them that's the problem. Fair use doctrine covers extracting a small portion of a publication, often text. However, to produce the extensive font image comparisons you're suggesting, I think I'd need to use public domain images (which I doubt exist) or seek out permissions of the owners or generate them myself. Although it's a great idea, I just don't have the cycles to undertake those tasks the right way.

Quick Decide Guide: new layout

I've moved factors up along side of alternatives and eliminated the open/hide mechanism in favor of an always-opened design. Also added visual indicators that reflect the currently active factor selections.

Please try the new design and let me know what you think: Quick Decide Guide to Best E-readers

As always, reworking and refinement of the factor content is ongoing and suggestions are welcome there as well (but this update was primarily content independent). Thank you.
