    So, I had been reading for awhile that if you wanted an android tablet on the cheap, you grab a Nook Color, hack a bit, overclock a bit, and BAM! Tablet. K, well picked one up... Got it hacked out. (CM 7.1) Well... Now what? It plays Angry Birds, and PvZ and that's great, but what the heck do you do with an Android Tablet? Then again, I think %90 of what I have done with my IPOD Touch has been play PvZ. >.> Ideas would be appreciated if anyone has them, if not, I guess maybe I oughta just sell the silly thing. >.>

    Personally, I use mine to read books and to browse the net while on the crapper.

    I would rather sell the iPod Touch and keep the Nook Color. The Nook Color has the same experience but on a 7" screen. You could also get a smartphone if you'd rather have a "portable" device.

    For ereading on a Andriod Device i found i really Liked Aldiko for the software, and there is a good level of addictive games i enjoy only for android/ios Kairosoft makes them Gp story etc.. As well you can get some unique rpgs and the like in the old school style only on tablets.
