- Features Run of the mill Android based device. Stock Nook software is pretty nice though compared to using a Kindle.
- Display Display has a lot to be desired, just feels like a blown up Android OS running on a 7" screen.
- Battery life If you leave this stock or stockroot you will easily go 2 days without needing a charge.
- Ease of use If you know Android you'll know this device. Stock Nook is fairly simple to navigate and is a pleasure to use over Kindle software.
- Storage capacity No comments
- Design and form factor No comments
- Portability (size / weight) It's a little heavy for a 7" screen, could definitely be lighter. However I imagine most of the weight is due to the color screen.
- Durability Within the first day of using this it felt like the case was already falling apart on the bottom of the device.
I think this is the perfect device for someone looking for a cheap Android tablet to tool around with. You can't beat a $250 price tag for a 7" Android tablet that cane be rooted in a couple mouse clicks. Be forewarned though, if you root this an install the current iteration of CM7 (As of 6/4/2011) your battery life will be drastically reduced due to a deep sleep issue.
