got the color- bought a card (yes I did) everything worked fine on 2.3.7. except Google market/play (ugh) No apps from the store would DL at all- I did try something I found online this a.m. to fix it,and it seems to work ok now( I downloaded 3 apps after) (hope I'm allowed to share this) what I did was this (found on another android advice page) These instructions appeared at the end of the Manualnooter instructions and they worked for me: Start Nook Color Tools. Select the "All Settings" button. Unplug your NOOKcolor from computer. (If Plugged in.) Choose "Manage Applications" from the list. Select the "All" tab. Scroll down to "Market" and select it. Tap "Force stop". Tap "Clear cache". Tap the Back button if you have SoftKeys running, else swipe right to left on the status bar at the bottom of the screen (from the clock to the book icon). Scroll up to "Google Services Framework" and select it. Tap "Clear data". Tap "OK". Tap "Force stop". Press the n button to return to your launcher. Start Market. At the "An error has occurred" message, tap "OK". Hold your power button to turn off your NOOK Color from the menu. Turn your NOOK Color back on and give it a moment to find your WiFi connection. Start Market again, and the problem is resolved.
