Conclusion Overall, the Nook Color as a standalone Android tablet performed very well and comparable to the Archos 70. At a great price of $250, the Nook Color is an excellent value. It was disappointing that the Nook could not process our HD videos. This may be a limitation to this specific unit. Unfortunately, we could not install another video player to determine with the Nook can play HD videos. However like most things, you do get what you pay for. The Nook Color (assuming you can root & install the CM7 custom ROM) is a good BASIC tablet. There are more powerful tablets on the market that also run Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) which is optimized for tablets. Of course, you will pay double the price. Consumers will need to decide if they want a decent Android tablet for a reasonable price or if they want a tablet that is more powerful at a higher cost. With Archos introducing its next generation Android tablet, the 80 would cost $30 more than a Nook but pack a dual core processor, Android 3.1, front facing camera, HDMI port, & much more. ViewSonic is launching (if it has not already) its ViewBook that is $230 with comparable specs to the Nook Color. Decisions, decisions. For the full review, check our blog.
