I recently got a nook color and based on my experience thus far, am totally in love with tablet computers. The nook doesn't come with all the essential android components and must be rooted in order to get a full verision of android up and running. For 250 bucks you get a tablet that has the same base specs of a Droid x or 2 or something. Well worth the money and whatnot. It's pretty decent for note taking as well once you get used to the infernal capacitive keyboard but has plenty of other worthwhile features too. For this next week I will try to use only my tablet as a computer to see how android works as an operating system.
