I'm sure this is a decent cheap tab to take and root. Any suggestions?

@glandes: My suggestion on this device is to make a boot card running CyanogenMod 7. (CM7)

You leave the reader intact and can run as an Android Tablet by inserting the microSD card. You can make the card up to 32GB which is excellent and Google Play is available for Apps. XDA.developers has the how to, there are lots of YouTube videos on it...or you can even buy an already made card.

Use Class 2 or 4 for best results....I have made close to a hundred of these and you will not be able to find more bang for your buck.

I had a Nook Color for a while, and would buy one again. I had mine rooted, but using the stock rom. I enabled side loaded apps, added all the Gapps, including Android Market (this was before the rebrand to play), and added a third party launcher. It was great and was even able to fit in most of my jean's pockets.

Good price, but seriously, just buy a real tablet. Why buy from a company that purposely makes their software closed? Yes, you can fix it, but you shouldn't have to, and by buying it, you endorse it.

Awesome--just had a friend showing me his Nook Color over the weekend, and had got me into wanting to find one for cheap. He said it was super easy to root. I was plenty impressed with it. Great deal.

@glandes: GREAT DEAL !!! If rooting this tablet i would highly suggest using nothing but a SANDISK micro card tried with other brand card and had nothing but load errors ! used same boot program on sandisk card and tablet works flawlessly!!!

@bigbry28: EXACTLY. SanDisk....but class 2 or 4...higher presented problems.

How quickly does cowboom.com ship? I know someone who wants to buy one of these as a present but needs it within a couple weeks.

These are awesome. Easy enough for my non-tech-savvy mom to use, interesting enough for the rest of us to want to steal from her and mod. This deal is pretty tempting.

@jgarcia408: If you do not need it for a couple weeks, no problem. They use UPS, and get it out within a couple days.

@jgarcia408: Every time I buy something from Cowboom it gets to my house within a week or so. I have always had excellent luck with them!

Nook Color was the first "tablet" I owned. Promptly loaded CyanogendMod 7 onto the internal memory, was not even looking back to the stock Nook software.

Now, it's in possession of my fiancee, who uses it to read books with Aldiko and watch movies that I load for her. I enjoyed it and now she is also. :)

I am very happy with my "rooted" nook color. I got the deal with the color and the nook touch....best deal I got in a while....I like both readers...and I used the SD card method to make it a android tablet. Its a modified CyanogenMOd7....

This is a great price for a decent tablet. Its not a Ipad 3, but it cost about 1/6 of one too, and does everything I need....
