Just got a color nook (50$ off!)...and about to root. any advice? honeycomb not?
One tip to get the market working: force stop and clear the cache and data from the market and the framework service and reboot.
It's pretty fast, and I've not had a crash yet.
But yes, it will get better once the AOSP drop happens. In the meantime, though, it's replaced my iPad for my couchsurfing.
Edit - one annoying glitch: while the accelerometer works and the screen turns, there's either a glitch in the repositioning code or a problem with the exact resolution, because the stuff on the screen ends up moving to a really weird place. It can in some cases actually end up "off screen". So position stuff in the center left (portrait) or center top (landscape) and it works. Or use Launcherpro. Otherwise, totally usable, and dare I say - more responsive than my stock Gingerbreaded Nexus One.
Do you know if it's any better at identifying it's a tablet in the market? Last time I tried the market didn't recognize I was on a tablet and didn't show the SI app for tablets.
