    This is all very nice but once I completed the task of creating a tablet that works nicely by the way, I found that I could not get into the android apps store because the device's phone # was not registered. I had to resort to other sources for apps. How do you get into the apps store for android?

      In my case, signing up for a Gmail account/Google account and registering a credit card with the market....

    Why is the response to viewing the slides sooooo slow?

  • Mic?

    Does the nook have a built in microphone and speakers and be able to use Skype? This will be a must for my first tablet I buy.
