So I'm rummaging through this thread for a great NIT successor. Any new information? Considering an Android tablet, but having trouble finding something similar to the n810 as far as size, keyboard, etc... So has anyone moved on to another device? Which one?

HTC desire Z; rooted; with debian image you can chroot into.

works for me. a 16GB samsung class 6 uSDHC card holds everything I need, giving me a 2.5GB debian arm partition, a 512MB swap, and lots of room for data files.

The Galaxy Note will be your thing then Me on the other hand I'm more leaning towards the Sharp Lynx mention in the quote below.

I've replaced my N800 with a Rooted Nook Color running the latest CM7 Nightly. Currently overclocked to 1100Mhz.

It is a bit larger than the N800 at 7" but I still find it quite portable.

The biggest plus for me is that you can get one for under $200, and soon (when B&N announces the NC2) it will be significantly under.
