I think you mistyped or I'm not understanding. Did you mean that the Nook Tablet is far more capable than the N7?
No, I did neither. You appear to have pretty much no idea what you're talking about, and started off yapping about a nook color you don't appear to have used in a while, and equating that to the nook tablet. In that statement, you were largely wrong. When people pointed out the incorrect material in your posts, instead of saying "Gee, you're right, I was wrong and what I said really didn't help anyone", you tried peanut buttering things around to be less wrong.
I think that for most people, a rooted and rommed nook tablet will do most of what they want to do most of the time. The n7 will do more for a longer time, but I don't think what it has over the NT will matter to most. At nearly 3x the price I paid for my NT for a nexus 7 with no SD slot (which I need)..its not a good deal for me, or most people. Of course, if rooting and putting a rom on an NT or buying a $20 premade SD card is out of the question, and money is no object, then the nexus is fine.
I don't usually just dump someone on my ignore list until they've conclusively proven they're an idiot, but you've come close enough that I don't want to mistakenly read something you write in the future and think that any of it is useful or factual.
I bought one of these a few months back. Installed CM10.1 and it rocks and rolls. Very smooth experience, no complaints to speak of. I do wish that it had GPS and a front facing camera, but for $99 this thing is fantastic.
Ok, Tech guys, I got my shipping notice today so it should be arriving soon.
I don't want to screw up the rooting thing, so what is a good site that you recommend to buy this rooted SD card? I've checked out N2A website and also the Root my Nook CM7? product on Amazon. Which one is better? I just want to buy the SD card, stick it in and start using the Rooted Nook. I don't want to mess with the rooting thing myself (think your wife or Mother or someone not computer savvy doing it and screwing it up). What would you suggest that they get? What website? What product?
I really, really hate fanboys. The nexus 7 is a great device but guess what, so is the nook tablet. Is the nexus 7 100 buvks better than a nook table? Hell no. Can the people who use their tablet to skype or as a gps please raise theit hand? How about those that can tell the difference between 600p and 720p? The nost annoying thing about the nexus 7 is the storage. The 32gb model should be considered the base model and costs 250 retail. For 15 bucks you can get a 32 gb sd card and put it in the nook and for 99% of people the tablet will be functionally equivalent to a nexus 7. I would've stayed with my nook tablet but I wanted higher resolution for reading and got the nook hd. I am also a very happy ownet of an asus transformer infinity tablet so I am no fanboy. Devices need only be as powerful as what you need them to.
My fiance wants a new e-reader for her birthday, her original nook is pretty beat up. It's hard to justify spending money on one when you can get an ipad for a couple hundred more, then again it's hard to justify an Ipad when tablets are so cheap, what to do? Right now I'm sort of on the fence with Nexus7, Nook HD and Ipad2. I also just found this Nook Tablets for $100, that's what I would do but she thinks it's too old.
Thanks OP - was actually traveling this week -my crappy 4GB cheapo died on me - and I was desperate (and welcoming the opportunity) to upgrade a bit. My travels landed me near a Fry's - so I picked it up.
So my hotel room project was to get this thing modded - which I did, and it is fast, smooth and beautiful. No lag at all - everything has been perfect so far, exceeding my expectations. The display is beautiful - although if I had any complaint, it might be that the screen shows fingerprints more so than the cheapo I had been using, but that may be the trade-off for such a razor sharp awesome display. At $99 - i am more than happy!
First time ever trying to install on any tablet. I've been working on this all day, and I can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. I'm trying to install CM10 internally on Nook Tablet and I've followed the procedures in the wiki. At this point, I just want to finish it so, I have $20 via paypal to send to someone who can successfully guide me through the process over the phone. PM me with your phone number (or I can respond to your PM with mine if you prefer) ASAP if you're interested, looking to finish this tonight! Thx, Keith
