Not sure yet, Ill run a bench mark, people have comparisons between it and the galaxy on you tube and its pretty darn close.


I had it installed on a SD card at first, and it was a little slow, now i totally wiped the old OS and put on Honeycomb and its like butter, all features, market etc.. sooo awesome!

Ill download and Run a Bench

IMHO the best thing about the iPad isn't the hardware, it's all the apps available for it.

Was that a official download or did u root it and flash it to do so? We have a nook and id love to be able to do that to it. But I read if u root it and flash it, then u lose ur ability to order from barnes and noble like though their store and stuff

My wife and I just purchased a top of the line IPad online that is costing us around $1,000. It is supposed to be top-of-the-line with memory, case, adapters, etc.

We don't even have it yet, and she is talking about all the great apps., and we are planning a family vacation in May and have G.P.S. and internet using cell phone technology. I can't wait to get used to it since it sounds better than a laptop.

1k for an iPad?! In no way is it better than a laptop, and for 1k you could had a bad ass laptop. Bluray, way bigger hd, way more memory, and a wireless plan.

Apple iDevices suck, unless jailbroken of course! (SR tech advisor for Apple, I should know!)

I'm interested in this project because I have made a complete changeover to android system. I love the open source availability that it has. I like how you can actually use it without the Apple issues...

my brother got his new nook shipped to my house (room mate problems?) and had it running honeycomb in 30 minutes of getting it out of the box.
he and i were similar to you, we went from iphones to android (me just 5 days ago) and couldn't be happier. although i did see this video, which made me somewhat want an ipad 2, but i think a nook would be cheaper.


the video is a bit long, but the guys are funny

We are changing ALL of our LapTops and hand helds over to web os in the coming year for that exact reason . Much easier to maintain , much easier to use , AND a ton more compatable apps to use as well . Look for all major MFG'ers to be doing this . Cost effective as well as industry acceptable for hand held's palms and nooks , etc .

Does anyone have a link or how to on that? I used Odin when I had to reflash my phone back to 2.1 because i hated 2.2 on it.

here is the how to I used:

http://forum.androidcentral.com/u-s-...mesmerize.html

Is it anything similar to that?

This article on a news site I read describes how to use Android fully on a
Nook Color. Web OS is not Android, they are two totally different
Linux-based mobile operating systems. I haven't ever done this on a Nook
before, but I have rooted Android on my Droid X to be able to take full
advantage of the hardware and operating system.
