Looking to get a full-color eReader on the cheap? Or perhaps a CyanogenMod conversion candidate? DailySteals is offering up refurbished B&N NOOK Color tablets for just $150, shipping included (next best price we've found is $190 shipped for a refurb).

That's quite a steal for a 7" IPS display, complete with the NOOK's signature carabineer hook thing. The NOOK Color has been renowned for its hackability, particularly because you can get it to run CyanogenMod 7 pretty easily. And once you do that, you have a full-featured Android (albeit Gingerbread) tablet with Market access and a thriving developer community. For $150, we're going to go ahead and say this is one of the better deals you'll ever see on an Android tab.

However, it ends at midnight tonight (September 30th), so you'll have to snatch one up quick.

    Not a Tegra 2 at all.

      Fixed.

    Whoa there, the Nook Color is a nice little device, but it runs a Ti OMAP at 800 Mhz.

  • FactConcern

    It's a TI OMAP 3621. Similar to the 3630 that's in the DroidX, but Clocked at 800Mhz. If you do install CyanogenMod on it, the stock kernel for it can be overclocked to 1.2Ghz, but it's nothing close to a Tegra 2.

    I just bought the refurbished nook color and installed cyanogen mod 7.2, couldn't be happier! Will do me until I can afford an iPad.
