Is the 8GB on-board enough space? Seems my 16GB is just enough for me as I'm at 12GB already. Some of these apps seem to take a ton of space these days. The newer Nook HD has an awesome screen. Even better than the Nexus7. In trying to pick a tablet that was right for me I found not much in the way of easy to understand comparisons. Here's an article noting the differences of the 3 leading ones.
Personally I'd like to hack the Nook HD, but with the memory card hack I read where you can still leave the Nook's original system intact and simply take the memory card out to run it in the original state. Some of the features with multiple profiles are attractive... especially for families.
