The Barnes & Noble NOOK Color may not have a dual core processor or a microphone, but that’s about all that’s separating this 7 inch Android tablet aimed at readers from the newer NOOK Tablet.
Barnes & Noble normally sells the NOOK Color for $169, but the retailer has just dropped the price to $149, making this one of the cheapest Android tablets available with a 1024 x 600 pixel display.
It ships with the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store instead of the Google Play Store, but there are all sorts of neat tricks you can perform to install custom ROMS and add the Google Play Store — some of the most popular methods involve booting from a microSD card so you don’t even overwrite the operating system that comes with the tablet.
