When the Nook Tablet debuted, several of my friends jumped at the chance to pick one up. Their intent was to root the device and run a standard version of the Android operating system on the hardware. I held off purchasing my own gadget -- instead, I picked up an e-reader with eInk. I prefer reading on that type of screen. In my electronic book, both the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire are good devices, but weren't exactly what I wanted.
