Kerplunk! Down went the credit card for two reconditioned NookColors at Buy.com for $150 each with free shipping. Reconditioned Nook Color @ Buy.com I was going to wait until closer to Christmas to see if the prices go down, but the Nook Color seems to be getting a lot of attention these days, so I don't really see that happening. I did see it on one of the lesser "dealz" type site for $137, but these weren't sold/shipped by B&N like the Buy.com ones are. Their Reseller.com rating wasn't exactly stellar either. I think with shipping it brought it up over the $140 range, so it just wasn't worth risking to save less than $10 per unit. I should receive them on 10/26, and will be immediately rooting/ROMing them (which is why I posted this in the Tablet forum instead of eReader). They're for my two youngest kids for Christmas mostly because they're spoiled brats (who have everything else), but also to get them off my Acer A500 tablet, which is mine, mine, MINE, ALL MINE! Anyway, thanks to Jig and QF (and anyone else I may have missed) for paving the way. I may pick your brains since you've had a significant head start! I tried to put CM7.1 on my HTC Evo 4G as my daily driver ROM to get better acquainted with it, but at least the Evo port of CM7.1 isn't very reliable. I was having a lot of basic phone problems (slow 3G, GPS, MMS, quirky bluetooth pairing, etc.). From what I've read, that doesn't seem true of the NookColor port of CM7.1, so hopefully I'll have a better experience. I guess it doesn't hurt that the Nook Color doesn't have a lot of phone hardware in it. I've tried CM on my Evo before, and although I didn't keep it on there, previous versions were much more stable than 7.1. I'll keep this thread updated with my progress/experiences.
