    I'm using the roocase from Amazon. Real nice. Leather, with a stand in landscape mode.

    I'm not sure you'd like the fit. I could put up with a foam spacer if the NC was smaller.

    Galaxy Tab: 7.48 x 4.74 x .47 inches
    Nook Color:
    8.1 x 5 in x .48 inches

    Also bear in mind, BT on the NC is flaky at best and range is limited when it does work. I hope they get this fixed in the latest kernel version.

    Pretty cool design tho. :D

    Has anyone's successfully paired the Nook with the keyboard. I have never even tried the Bluetooth on the Nook. I think I could modify the case a little better cosmetically but I really like the ability to have a "working" keyboard. Price is worth the risk

    Bear in mind the NC's BT range is measured in inches, not feet. :D

    Yes but when using the keyboard case we are talking maybe 2".

    Guys, i did it. It works but it is glitchy as all hell. Do NOT expect it to be flawless. Expect it to be like some kind of pre alpha stage bug monster. If you can deal with this, its pretty cool :) hope this helps.

    Symbols arent where they say they are, connectivity issues, and random spasms happen.

    You need a different keyboard template to translate the different keys (apple to android).

    Just bought a Targus Bluetooth keyboard at Office Depot for $59. I'm running cm7 and it paired in 2 minutes. Works great.

    Pics of the keyboard? OK I'll put some up but first my father in law said he would build me a contraption to hold the Nook and keyboard.
