So I was reading Engadget, and it had a story that the NT and NC both had loopholes closed that allowed sideloading non-B&N content. So does this mean that booting from a mSD into CM7 is no longer an option? Me thinks that be a bad move on B&N's part. Most people usually ask a friend with some electronics know how before a purchase. And most people with electronics know how are usually people that like to tweak out their "toys". I understand trying to imitate Apple's walled garden approach to content, but the ability of B&N's NC and NT to be tweaked is what helped spur the word of mouth sales for them. Even the Fire is suffering. I mean keep your exclusive content approach for those not electronically inclined, but dammit man, let people make their own minds how they set up their tablets if they have the ability to do so. The suits that run the show at B&N better wake up! The price points on regular Android tabs are starting to drop to competitive levels to the Nooks and Fire's. The reason why Apple's approach works for Apple is their ecosystem is way better and more vast than B&N's App selection. B&N "HAS TO" allow content from the market if it wants to survive. I had considered purchasing the Nook Tab or the Fire, but as of now, no. And what I want out of a tablet is making me lean more towards the iPad2 everyday. The spec and models of Android tablets I would consider are priced exactly the same as the fruit pad. Can B&N do the right thing and swing me back in that direction? We'll see. But they better hurry. I am already halfway in my tablet fund to the iPad. Which Ironically is enough to get the NT or Fire.
