The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
On April 27th, 2011, I wrote a Plus Edition article describing how to convert a low-cost Nook Color handheld ebook reader into a powerful Android tablet computer. The Nook features a gorgeous, 7-inch color screen, the Android operating system, wi-fi wireless networking, audio (it makes a great music and movie player), a leading e-book reader program, a microSD slot for memory expansion, an accelerometer, a web browser that runs Flash, an email program, a calendaring program, and the capability to download and install new programs. Not bad for a $250 device!
In the article, I described a method of converting the Nook into an Android handheld tablet that has all of the above but then adds even more software capabilities. The Plus Edition article, (+) A $249 Bargain Android Tablet Computer, is still available at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=15451. However, now an even simpler method has emerged, requiring no work or software modification by the user.
