title is somewhat confusing. its not a nook color tablet, its a nook tablet. the nook color is a different device. its one or the other, not both. i understand the attempt to classify the screen as having more than one color (vs the nook simple touch), but frankly i blame barnes and noble. their product line is confusing as hell.
reaaaaally? too many versions, they need to keep it simple. youd have to really be into gadgets (as most of us are, but still) to be up to speed on specs and differences in the models.
Don't even waste your money. I just rooted a Nook Color for a family member, and these things are so freaking slow, they're nearly unusable as a tablet.
Gingerbread, with its ugly Phone UI, is about the only Android OS that runs halfway stable, and somewhat fast on it. You can get Android ICS, and even Jellybean on it, but everything lags like crazy, and forget about YouTube in HD, you'll be stuck with standard definition.
Spend an extra $30 and get a Nexus 7. I still can't get over the unbelievable speed, resolution, and lightweight of my Nexus 7. It truly is the best tablet out there. Unless you want to spend a few hundred more, then go with an iPad, much better app library.
I'd have to second that. Bought my wife a Nook Color a year ago, new, and it was a P.O.S. out of the box. We couldn't read more than 10 pages of an e-zine before it would lockup. We struggled for months until a nice B&N employee said there was no way it should perform that way, told me to call support. After 3 frustrating calls doing the same factory reset, they determined it was junk and had a new one in my hands in 2 days. The new unit that has worked flawlessly since. I'd have a hard time with a refurb that is only $30 off after the problems we experienced with a new one. Make it ~100 and it'll pique my interest.
Decent find OP, but that price point is walking a fine line. IF you're the gambling type, go for it.
See, you're confusing the two products also! You rooted a Nook Color -- single core 800MHz CPU. This is a Nook Tablet -- dual core 1GHz CPU.
To keep it simple there's the Nook Color reader/tablet and the Nook Tablet tablet. Two completely different products with different specs.
I see, the one I rooted was probably 800MHz. Still, the 1GHz is probably slow as well. Does it have 512 or 1 gig of ram.
I've had an Archos 1.2GHz tablet with 512 of RAM, and that was frigging tortoise slow compared to my Google Nexus 7, even after I overclocked it.
I still wouldn't buy a Nook 1GHz, when for a few bucks more I could get a lightning fast Nexus 7 with a 1.2GHz quad core Tegra III cpu, 1GHz RAM, IPS display, and a battery that lasts so long it seems like it never drains.
