I'm thinking of getting a nook color since I'm thinking =s cheap tablet if i root it. Did u do so or r u using B&N apps and r they enuf & OK? Guy @ B&N sort of hinted that nook color is about 1 yr old & just n time 4 Xmas there may b a newer 1--so can't decide to buy 1 now or wait & see what may b round the corner--always a dilimma for technology! Tks, Fran
Okay, i'm confused.
So i have this Nook Color i received for Christmas ans supposedly they are releasing an "app store" sometime this quarter, but I've heard it will basically be proprietary, there wont be many apps, and it will basically be still book centered. i honestly kinda was hoping for an android tablet kind of update, and can get that if i root the Nook color. (for those who don't know, rooting is a lot like jail breaking, but for the Nook) Now don't get me wrong, i know a lot of the risks all to well and am pretty savvy in the process, (since rooting is similar to jail breaking) but i need to know more of the benefits and i would like to know more for sure about this B&N app update. (there are very mixed messages floating around) And most importantly i need to know if rooting is worth it, or if i should stick with B&N on this one. Plz help,
