Awesome deal here! Reviews call the Nook Color a mediocre e-reader, and it's true. If you want a pure e-reader, get a device with e-ink and save your eyes.
The Nook Color is GREAT as an all-around tablet that people have been rooting (warning: you will void your warranty) and installing custom Android ROMs on. Check out the specs:
- 800MHz Cortex A8-based (ARM) TI OMAP 3621
- PowerVR SGX530 GPU
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB Internal Memory
- Expandable to 32GB via microSDHC
- 7" 1024x600 IPS Display w/ LED Backlight
- 3.7V 4000mAh 14.8Wh Li-ion Battery good for 8 hours
- Micro-B USB 2.0 High-Speed Port
As you can see, these are really great specs for a $200 tablet. I have rooted mine and am currently running Android Gingerbread 2.3.2 viaPHIREMOD's
custom ROM w/ the CPU overclocked to 1.1 Ghz (do this at your own risk).
