              Hi all,

               

              How can I get one of these cards?

                I am sure these cards are wonderful. That being said...

                 

                I originally bought my Nook Color because it could be hacked to run full Android and I wanted to try this whole tablet scene but didn't have much money to spend on a toy (or what I thought was going to be a toy). $500 for a decent tablet was out of the question. Keep in mind that this was around 18 months ago. So I spent months researching various 7" tablets, reading articles, visiting forums and going to stores to play around with various models. It didn't take me long to settle on the Nook Color as being the obvious choice for me. You see I have been reading e-books for years. I started out reading them on my old Handspring Visor (the first time I read "The Call of Cthulu" literally sent chills down my spine) and moved from device to device.

                 

                So with the tax return from 2010 I was authorized by She Who Controls the Funds to purchase a Nook Color since I had been talking about wanting one for months. So the day came and I finally got one. Oh man I was ecstatic! I could read e-books on a nice sized screen, and I could run apps, browse the web, listen music and watch video's. It was a whole new world for me. This is kind of sad as I am an IT Professional but dealing with Windows networks all day I really didn't have the time to get into Android. However my inner geek soon got the better of me.

                 

                I started digging around and soon came across Nook Dev's where I learned how to soft root or auto-nooter my Nook. Then I discovered XDA Developers and have been there ever since. Fast forward a year and I now have a Nook Color, a Nook Tablet, a Nook Simple Touch and a Thinkpad Slate Tablet. Now that I have a legitimate full 10" tablet, my need for full Android has been sated. I am quite content with my Nook Tablet as it stands now.

                 

                It is running the stock OS rooted. I have access to all my B&N content, the Amazon app store and Google play. However I use it 90% of the time to read e-books. I really do love my Nook Tablet and my Nook Color. I am very glad that there are resources out there to allow the more technically challenged, or too busy people the ability to run the full Android OS on in what IMO is one the best 7" tablets on the market.

                 

                I am not sure now where I was going with this post, but there it is. :smileyhappy:

                  Temetka, I'm with you. I've been reading ebooks since my Handspring Visor. I broke down a couple weeks ago and bought a download of AndroidForNook, mostly just to play with. I could afford it at that price. I like being able to work with a tablet, but I have to agree that the experience is still more 'reading on a tablet' than having an ebook reader. The Nook OS still needs some work, but it gives you a reader feel even though you're reading on a tablet. If BN would have continued to let me run the apps I needed, like Citrix to get into work, and a few others, I would have still bought the Android card to play, but I wouldn't have felt that I needed to. And at least I have an ereader where I could plug in a card to do that, unlike some others.

                    Maybe this goes without saying, but can this card be used with the regular, basic Nook? I'm not very tech-savvy. Someone bought me the Nook and said I would be able to download library books with it, but it doesn't seem to be so. Thanks for any help!

                        Cards are only available for the Nook Color and Nook Tablets.
