Just wanted to share that since getting my TP that I ended up selling my Nook Color.
I originally got the NC months ago because I wanted a cheap good tablet. It's an excellent device, but the TP ended up winning.
After having them both around, and then finally getting android to work on my touch pro 2 phone (I don't want to upgrade to an expensive data plan, and this is a fix for the AD HOC wifi issue), I found I had no need for the Nook anymore. I've also saw recent threads on slickdeals about the NC for $150 shipped, so I figure it'll drop even more and I can buy it again in the future if I ever have a need for a large android phone - er, small tablet.
The only thing I miss from android is the apps (soundhound, yelp, foursquare, a good PDF reader, New York subway/transit apps). However, even with the Amazon Free app of the Day, I found that 95% of the stuff I got for free I never used and got rid off. I mainly used my tablet for the web browser, flash, and pdf reader.
A good web browser and large screen really negates the need for "apps".
Small size, fits in pocket.
expandable storage, it would be nice to just pop in and out sd cards vs transferring via a flimsy microusb cable
Google ecosystem, gmail, docs, maps,
developer support - If you find it fun, you can flash nightly roms (if you're from the Windows Mobile days, you'll know what I mean)
small screen, viewing large pdf kind of sucks sometimes.
it was kind of sluggish sometimes, even when overclocked, flash would slow it down to a crawl.
it's just an oversized android phone
On screen keyboard kind of sucks.
No camera, bluetooth doesn't really work (i never used this anyway, so no biggie)
huge screen (much easier on the eyes for viewing full page pdf)
webOS, wow, it's a slick interface.
on screen keyboard and autocorrect works pretty well
flash works pretty well
lack of aforementioned apps
lack of google stuff
Oh yeah, even with the Amazon Kindle app, I still don't use this thing to read books or magazine.
