Just A Word Of Thanks
I took advantage of the eBay deal to get a NC for $200. After messing with the NC, I realized that I prefer the Kindle I have as a reader. In fact I feel B&N really crippled the NC with their front end; imported books are treated as second-class citizens without access to the desktop or quick read bar (whatever it's called). As someone who reads a lot of short stories which I download and convert via Calibre, this was a big issue. I was ready to sell it on CraigsList and stick with my Kindle.
Then I read about rooting the NC on here and what joys that brings. I used these forums to gather all the information I needed to get the NC rooted. I read your tips and your failures. All that information really helped!
Now I have an entry-level Android tablet which works surprisingly well. I see some people aren't digging it but for what I need, it's just fine.
So I'd like to say thank you to everyone who posts here. You folks helped make this work for me and certainly for others. I went from feeling screwed to really enjoying the Nook Color!
