Barnes & Noble is offering a coupon code that knocks $50 off the price of the Nook Color on eBay. It’s not clear how long this sale is going to last, but that discount makes a really budget-friendly full-featured Android tablet (with a very little hacking required) even better. Once you’ve Autonooted it, you can put the Kindle Reader Android app on it for crowning irony.

Forget the cheap Chinese crackerjack-box tablets with resistive screens powered by hamster wheels—a sub-$200 full-featured Android tablet is here. And with the moves Apple is making toward its e-book competitors, this might be a good time for e-book readers to start jumping ship.
