Can't beat it for the money...can root & get an Android tablet...

iconcilio has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I bought an 8GB Nook Tablet on e-bay when my son "borrowed" my original Nook and went back to college - but I was glad to do it because he was reading books for pleasure. My ex had a nook tablet which I thought was pretty nice (she had given me her original Nook - before the "ex" part). I found a Nook Tablet on e-bay for $70, listed as "New, other", probably a manufacturer refurb from a reputable seller, but fully functional - the only defect were some permanent smudges on back (who cares?). I used free online sources to root to Android 4.4 (cyanogenmod), added a 16GB SDHC, I now have a 7" Android tablet (installed Nook App to get my books back) . It works well, but has no camera. Also, the battery only lasts about 6 hours active video (Netflix) and 10 hours of reading with about 40% brightness on reader (screen used 70% of power) - this is after cycling the batteries 3x 100%->1%. I don't know if this is because of the refurb or whether this is normal. The other thing is the 7" - this is OK for book reading, but might not be enough for some - the Nook HD/HD+ have 8"/9.3" screens (maybe that's why I have an "ex") - just some food for thought...

  • Had to root to Android 4.4, but worth it
