For android lovers. Not easy out of the box. Walled Garden.

Summary: The tablet looks nice, but once you start up the tablet, you'll notice that everything costs money. Barnes and Nobles's android market really sucks. Everything costs money. That's right.... Everything. If I'd known that, I would have just bought a kindle or nexus 7 where both amazon's marketplace or Playstore have ALOT of free apps/content. I can't even install apps I put onto my sd card. Android lovers will tell you. What are you talking about?
Excerpt: My Nook Color is constantly freezing up, either getting stuck mid-book or even in the middle of the library screen. Calls to customer service are not helpful - they have me reset it to factory settings, which means it has to re-load all of my books and magazines. I was informed that I would probably need to do this every time the Nook froze. There has to be an easier way, or they should have offered to replace the product.
Excerpt: I received the Nook Tablet as a Christmas present last year. It was what I thought I wanted. It was supposed the have the better processor (compared to the Kindle Fire) and who doesn't love Barnes and Noble, right?! I am sorry to say, I was WRONG. I had assumed (I know, never assume) you could put just about any app on it. Again, wrong. The app selection is very limited. Doesn't even have Facebook available.
