Well, I did it after all. The Nook is rooted (since very late Sunday night). Evernote works without a flaw, and even the Android Market Place is now accessible. After three days traveling with it and using it on the T, I can say that it works pretty much as I had hoped it would.
Now, if I had only more ideas. Reading also works, though Beckett How it is is perhaps not the best book to read on the T.
