    And I posted this in "Android" because the Nook Color runs on Android.

    it's also an update to 2.2 froyo, but it's always been the best budget tablet since last year when it got rooted, now it can run CM7 and ports of honeycomb

    How much do these run for? I've been wanting a real android tablet, since my Archos 28 is pure shit / can't run anything.

    EDIT: 250USD?! That's cheap! Does it run Froyo like any other device would, like it's not Nook branded or anything like that?
