    The Android blog Android and Me has a good article for the uninitiated about the joys of the rooted Nook Color:

    Nice article, like the part: "Rooting the NOOKcolor is almost as easy as counting to three. When developers first gained root access, it looked like it was a daunting task. Fortunately, things have come a long way in the past few months. Now, all you need is a spare microSD card and about ten minutes of spare time."

    Nice review, but I wish people would mention that the Nook Color rooting is still a work in progress. It will evolve & become less quirky & be a solid tablet. IMO
    I think it has been mentioned that with some tweaks (setCPU etc.) NC will be capable of competing with many new tablets on the market & be stable, without the user having to jump through hoops to get all the functionality.

    Cheers,
