Well folks it just got a lot better. The new 1.2 update that was released early this week makes it by far the best value Android tablet out there. The update adds improved performance and stability, adobe flash support (something the ipad still can't do), an email application supporting pop and imap, and an app store. So far there are about 150 apps available some of them free, and hopefully many more coming soon. I purchased the quick office pro app allowing me to create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations and store and save them in Google Docs, Dropbox, Box.net, or Mobile Me. Did I mention that you can get all this for only $250. So if you dismissed the Nook Color as not quite feature rich enough to meet your needs I urge you to take a second look.
