It might be a good deal for electronics geeks if they used the same circuit board as the full-featured Nook, whereby one could solder the needed memory chips in place to achieve the full memory capacity. I know of guys that would perform that hack with Palm Pilot PDAs in the 1990s. Of course, that would void the warranty ...

[citation][nom]kawininjazx[/nom]To be honest the extra memory and storage are what made the nook better, especially with android hacks, but to save $50, you are losing a lot.[/citation]
The kind of customer who buys a Kindle Fire mostly consists of people who think the Kindle Fire is the same as the iPad only smaller and costs only $199. So these people would also pass up on the $249 Nook Tablet because, after all, it is "the same thing" in their mind. These are the same people that stand in line on Thanksgiving so they can claim that "just as amazing as every other computer" desktop or laptop for $199. Now we know that these are built using left over motherboards, hard drives, and Semprons/Celerons from an old model from 2 years ago and come with maybe 512MB RAM and maybe a 150W PS and onboard video.

These customers don't care because they don't understand that there is a reason why some things cost more than others and do not get the phrase "you get what you pay for."

The $249 Nook Tablet would be great for rooting and loading a third party ROM, It's got good specs for it's size. The extra RAM alone will greatly increase performance.
