Now this has Google Play it is now much more interesting...before it was a closed in system which seemed more annoying than it was worth.

Can be dual booted with Cynogenmod.

This is a great price for 9" tablet. The screen is one of the best around (certainly for this price!)

Great tablet but not the most stable with CM. Waiting for mine to updayeand see how the new google apps work on stock

Since my post was deleted, I will give some heat here. Not sure why people are voting this cold. It's a great deal for a great tablet. It is much better than Kindle Fire HD, except for the lack of camera, but there are workarounds for that.

Screen almost as good as Ipad 4 resolution at 264 pixels per inch, HD + resolution at 256 pixels per inch. For less than half the price and only 0.7 of an inch less screen.

If your voting cold, please let me know why? Seem a good deal.

Couple of downsides, even with the access to Google Play. One is the reported sluggish operating system, which makes it suitable for reading and games and less useful for web browsing. Another is the proprietary charger which is an extra to carry around and almost impossible to replace in the UK.

Would rather buy this than the Nexus 7 TBH. Given you some heat.

A lot more screen that Nexus 7. I prefer 8 and 9 inch tablets, portable but better for my poor eyes and browsing.

more to do with the resolution, the processing power (dual core 1.5G > quad core 1.2G IMHO) and microSd card.

I'm running the Hybrd CM10.1 install on mine and performance seems very good. I can dig out benchmark scores if you want. The B&N skin / launcher is reputedly not that great. I've barely used it unmodded.

The charger is one with a USB port into which the charging cable plugs in - so you can just take the cable with you, although it would probably take longer to charge.

Voted hot as it has a decent cpu - omap 4470? Good screen and is a nice size..

Great resolution, about time we see some tablets with that

Great screen, SD card, reasonable performance. This is currently the best device for the price if you want primarily an ebook reader that you can also use as a regular Android tablet.

When you say e reader isn't the screen LCD?

Yes. It's not an E ink device. The Nook software is designed mostly for reading use cases though.
