Guide to Making a Great Android Tablet Out of a $249 E-Reader

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

With all the new tablets on the market it’s very tempting to lay down the requisite $500-700 to own a good one, but what if I told you there was a way to convert a good $250 e-reader into a great little tablet?  The Barnes & Noble Color Nook e-reader runs a custom version of Google’s Android OS and that let developers and hackers find ways to unleash its real power, and that’s just what they’ve done.  This guide will walk you through installing and configuring your Nook Color as a true Android tablet.  And while others may disagree, the size, utility, and style of this tablet rivals in many ways the Apple iPads, the Motorola Xooms, and the Samsung Galaxy Tabs.  One thing we can all agree on, $250 is quite a bargain for a device that could literally revolutionize your interaction with the web, and in a way, the world.

All you have to do is follow the directions at this Guide to Installing, Configuring, and Overclocking Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on a Nook Color.
