The Nook 2nd Edition need a forum (or at least a subforum) as it is sometimes difficult to differentiate N2E's from NC's thread. Moreover, there is more and more N2E thread created ...

+1 to Nook STR forum. Guys at Nook Color forum are getting angry with Nook STR owner, because they think we are spamming their forum, and asking us to go to "other devices" forum, as if Nook STR was less than Nook Color...:cool:

This has been requested for quite a while. Is there any real reason this has not been done yet? I know the mods are busy but it would be nice to at least receive an acknowledgement.

Thanks! (we need this forum!)

It is obvious that there needs to a subforum for the Nook simple touch. In some ways the E-ink makes this a vastly superior tablet for those that use the device to be productive and more than play games. E-Ink is so much easier on the eyes compared to a LCD screen.

Ridiculousness of the lack of a Nook2 sub-forum...

It is a bit ridiculous that we still don't have a sub-forum for the Nook2. It is bothersome to the Nook Color owners whose forums are being overrun and it is also hampering the development on the Nook2. We are all aware at this point of the merits of the device, it runs Android 2.1, it is extremely hack-able, while it can't do animation or video it can do things other Android devices can't. For those of us that are using the device it has unique benefits over other Android devices because of the readability of the screen and lengthy battery life. I use the Nook2 far more than any of my other Android devices specifically because of this. We really want to focus on development for this device because of its unique attributes. Applications need to be optimized (or at least some consideration) to make the best use of the eInk screen. Right now, this draconian lock against creating a separate subforum is stifling development for the Nook2 AND Nook Color. I hate to say this, but if the XDA administrators will not create a sub-forum ASAP, does anyone have any suggestions for another place to host Nook2 development forum? It is a real shame because it has a lot in common with the Nook Color and it can benefit from collaboration from existing Nook Color development, but right now this forum structure is just hampering the development for BOTH devices.

Please give us a sub-forum for Nook Touch Reader, this is a new device and it's incredibly good for content side-loading, it's been rooted already and it really just needs a place for a community to put the parts together.

It really doesn't belong in the same sub-forum as the Nook Color.

+1 for the sub forum, please. I got my nook right when they came out and would love a dedicated hacking location.

    Would like to request a forum for the Barnes & Nobles Nook Simple Touch. It runs Android 2.1, and has been rooted. It is the first e-Ink reader with a full-fledged OS, and is eminently hackable. Its SoC is the same as the Nook Color, and CM7 will likely be ported to it. It has a 2-month battery life and daylight-readable screen, at a low cost of $139. It is shipping now.

    So from the various threads that are around in the Nook Color thread, so far people have managed to

    - root the nook touch,
    - access superuser permissions,
    - Work out there is 728mb usable ram and 228mb program memory,
    - Install and run ADWLauncher and LauncherPro
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4dMZvff9qg- Install and run FBReader
    - Install and run the Kindle app http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4MJungKIxY
    - Suggest that the CPU is the same as the Nook Color?!?
    - Suggest that the Nook Touch has Bluetooth but it is disabled
    - Suggest that devs will start work on a CM7 port

    Some excellent developments already and an exciting future for the device, please may we have a forum/sub-forum now? Pretty please with sugar and cherries ontop? :)

    I second that request.

    Nook Simple Touch, once rooted, is the first eink Reader that doesn't bound hardware and manufacturer's software together. It has great potential to be the ultimate reading device.

    I second this request.
