    Color Nook

    Does anyone here have one? What do you think? As cheap as they are, I am thinking about picking one up, but my last tablet was an Archos 5 and I was greatly disappointed. What do you think? From what I have read, you can't flash custom roms, but a home replacement app can be installed and after that it runs just like any other tablet. Plus I think I read that it was overclocked to 1ghz. iirc

    Contact alphawave7 from android.net or NexusOneForum. I believe he has done exactly what you're asking about.

    Wait a minute....I think he's here too!

    I didn't get a Cr-48 during the great Cr-48 gold rush of 2010. I just got TWO off of eBay! NOW I can play with this OS on native hardware!!!!

    But I listened to scottj's 'rant' and began a bit of research...picked one up Friday night, and hacked it in it's first 5 minutes, since I had no interest in B&N registration (AMZ Kindle dude, though never owned a Kindle). I LOVE it! Currently only had time to do the basic Nooter hack, which is eclair and some tools, but even now it does 90% of the stuff I do browsing the web. LauncherPro seems broken, but Zeam launcher is working great, screen is better than okay (but certainly no superamoled-which WILL eventually force me to get GalaxyTab2), processor isn't blazing but holds it's own..'Raging Thunder' racing app looks and runs surprisingly well, it's almost shocking. Angry birds, surfing, music playback, my entire Youtube collection...all right there via wifi at home, or wirelessly tethered to my Nexus One as hotspot when out and about. A Tab is truly a game changer.....and I was skeptical.
