Nook Color’s New Software: It’s the Netbook of Tablets

Nook Color’s New Software: It’s the Netbook of Tablets, article/review of Nook Color.

Is the Nook Color worthy, considered as a tablet, not just an ereader? This article says it's not bad for the price.

Had one since the day it was rooted, it's a full bore tablet and arguably one of the best. The processor is of sufficient speed, the screen is excellent, it runs anything I throw at it. It runs Honeycomb just fine. It has excellent battery life. Very clean design. What's not to love?
And all this for $250, $200 on sale! A fraction of the cost of the iPad.
Despite all the Steve Jobs FUD 7" is an excellent form factor, which is arguably the best trade-off between screen size and portability.
I always carry my nook color with me and use it constantly. At work it has saved my neck by holding all my critical O'Reilly tech books.

All it really needs is software support for it's built in bluetooth to make up for the lack of a OTG USB port.

If the iPad is a Hummer, the rooted nook color is a fully tricked out Prius for the price of a Camry.
