First, I went in with decent expectations; it's not an IPad, it's not a NookColor, it's a <$200 android tablet. I wanted to try an ereader/tablet, but didn't want to pay $500+. When I first opened the box, I was a little relieved, not a bad looking item. As I began playing with it, I figured I could make this work. Then, I did the update. This is where it started getting a little annoying. The firmware upgrade was kind of a pain. I was able to knock it out within a few minutes, but it was a little confusing (hold the esc key down until it tells you to release it.) Next, I downloaded 1 book and 1 magazine using the Kindle application. Neither would work. So, I tried to loading the Nook application, and it wouldn't even load to the tablet. I tried a couple of games (Angry Birds) and really couldn't get them to work. I would not have counted off for this part, because it would have fallen into the notion that I wasn't getting an IPad. My recommendation would be to pay a little extra money and get the Nook-Color. My understanding is that the Nook can be routed which will give you more options. Otherwise, go with the big dogs (Ipad, Galaxy, etc.)
