Default missing something?

I'm looking for reviews (professional or user reviews) of the Nook HD+. I'm also looking for discussions of rooting the HD+, and the experience of those who have rooted it. There's an Android forum named "Nook HD+..." but if it has content, I'm missing that too. Can someone point to me to reviews, or to experience with rooting this reader/tablet?

I'm not sure where on the forums to look for this but I read an article on CNet about rooting nook tablets. I'm sorry I don't have the link for it though.

Thanks - There seems to be almost no information about the HD+, which is very strange for a tablet which has been available for a month or so now. Usually there would have been detailed specs, some professional reviews, and at least a few user reviews by now. So far, nothing.Even this forum, supposedly devoted to the HD+, has nothing in it. It makes me think the HD+ is "problematic" at best, or the equivalent of vaporware, at worst. Too bad. The concept is a good one.

1 search gives me tons of reviews. Here's the few at the top of the list:

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ Review - Watch CNET's Video Review

Barnes & Noble Nook HD and HD+ hands-on review ? Reg Hardware

Nook HD+ review: Hands-on | T3

Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet HD+ Review | Good E-Reader - ebook Reader and Digital Publishing News

Hands On: Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

Can't say I'm not surprised that it isn't hacked yet. B&N probably took a few more steps to keep them locked down than the last gen tablets so it'll be a while before that info gets on here. XDA Developers is the site that will have any rooting or unlocking info first since that is where the hackers post. I feel this site is geared to the majority of the public instead of the uber-techie.

Forums for new devices are usually pre-made before the device is released so it is pretty common to see brand new devices with little or no comments until a good chunk of the public has them. They've been out for about 30 days as of today which is a quick time to see a cracked OS or root option.

Thanks Chudley One - I'll be watching the xda forums, and I agree that the posts there are a few levels above my own technological competence. There seems to be a much easier procedure for rooting the Kindle Fire. Maybe that's the route I should go.

There has been some work done with opening up the new nooks but since the xda staff havent made a sub forum for them yet the threads that were around have all been closed up by the staff. Check the Nook Colour sub forum over on xda for what I mean.

Root is available & there has been success in putting CyanogenMod10 on the NookHD+ & NookHD on the XDA site. Still not very user friendly instructions but it should only be 1-2 weeks before it's a downloadable zip file to put on a memory card & have an unlocked, full featured tablet.
