My System Specs

Default Anyone played with a Pandigital Novel?

One of these things: Pandigital Novel PRD07T10WWH7 7in Touch Color Screen Multimedia eReader With WI-FI - White - MagicJack - PRD07T10WWH7

Seems like there's an active rom community on slatedroid, with a ICS cyanogenmod 9 version available.
Stuff a 16GB SD card in it, and it looks like a cheap way to muck around with android. Comments?

After buying a "cheap" tablet, I personally wouldn't go with anything less than a Tegra 2 based unit. The lesser units have so many limitations it makes using them much less fun. For that price you can always give it to the kids, but it will probably struggle to run anything intensive and not having BT and GPS is a major downer.

As soon as I see etailers posting caveats like this, I run away like a scared little boy..... :) I suppose it depends on what you want to do with it... probably fine as a reader, but when I've asked folks who've tried the lower end pandigital readers what they were like for surfing, the answers I got were that I shouldn't get my hopes up too much for anything other than just being able to view most pages (i.e. forget anything like angry birds..... ;) ).
