Thanks for driving me right back to the Fire, B&N.

Not that big of a deal.  All of the apps use the internal memory (if it operates like the Nook Color).  I haven't even came close to using the 1 GB of personnel storage.  If you root the device then you can have all the memory.  I don't have mine rooted though.  Any questions and I'll try to answer them.

So, what Barnes and Noble is saying, that you get 13 or so GB's worth of storage from their own online store, and only 1 GB for anything else?

If that's the case, then i can see why they did that. However, i'm not quite sure i agree. I read outdated Maximum PC magazines on the Nook Color (which is more then 1GB) so the new tablet wouldn't be for me (i also read tons of PDF's that i find online).

B&N does a similar thing with their Nook Touch. Of the 2GB memory, only 1GB is availble and of that 750MB is reserved for B&N content. Lame.

But it does take microSD cards and they are integrated seamlessly with the internal memory.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

It's never been an issue with my Nook touch, seeing as it only stores books (which don't command a lot of space), and you can use SD cards.

This will be irrelevant once it's rooted. LOL.

Yeah that shoots down any idea of me getting the nook tablet over the kindle fire.

Foul play. No question about it.
