+1 for Nook Tablet support.  I'm using the "old" version on the Nook.  It's fine.  The problem with the Nook right now is that shortly after the Nook Tablet was released, BN released a firmware update that blocked the ability to "sideload" applications (in other words, bypass the BN app store) which I was able to do shortly after I got mine in December.  It didn't last long, so I only have the few sideloaded apps I could get on there before my firmware was updated, including HamSatDroid.

So for the moment I have HamSatDroid but I can't take advantage of the new version.  Even with the limitations of the Nook compared to a full tablet (no camera or GPS), HamSatDroid worked very well and would do nicely in the field.

I'm not happy with BN, of course, but my tablet does everything else I expected (universal ebook reader), so I have no good reason nor budget to get a new tablet.  Thanks for HamSatDroid.
