  • What's a Tablet PC?
    Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with WiFi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

    • A. Yes! You can with the recent software update you now have access to over 700'000 apps from the android/ google play store and now with an even better price tag from Walmart just make sure you check your device when it arrives if it applies here for the update during the initial setup after its connected to a preferably high speed Internet wifi connection! Thanks I hope this has been helpful in your choice!

    • A. No. The Nook has an android operating system which is very limited by Barnes&Noble. The Nook is pretty much limited to apps sold by BN just for the Nook. You can however buy a commercially available micro sd card that will turn the Nook into a full android tablet and then you can access google apps. You could then also use the Nook to read Kindle books from Amazon. Out of the box Kindle and Nook are competitors so they don't like each others books.

    • A. Currently, apps from the Google Play store are not accessible from NOOK devices. The NOOK App store has thousands of the most popular apps available for download, and new titles are being added every day.

    • A. To download apps, you don't. To download books, you do but that's your Barnes and Noble account. They don't charge your card for free books; only for those that have a price. I'm not sure why they want your info for free books. It's never made sense to me. If you upgrade it to the latest software version then you have the Google Play store and it works just like on your phone. You go in and you download apps without entering credit card information unless they aren't free. :)

    • A. NOOK does not require connection to Wi-Fi in order to read books and magazines or view videos that are saved to your device, but you do need to connect to Wi-Fi in order to purchase/download new content from the NOOK or Google Play stores. There are some apps that require an internet connection in order to function, and streaming audio/video services such as Netflix and Pandora will also require a connection. One of the things that makes NOOK an ideal travel companion is that you can load up your device with as many books or magazines as you think you might need (and you can always utilize microSD cards if extra space is required, as may be the case with movies), and then all of your content is available right at your fingertips for the duration of your trip - no Wi-Fi required.

    Our entire family loves the Nook. I originally bought one because my daugher kept using our cellphones to play android games :( The Nook took care of that problem since all her favorite games are on there with Google Play Store. Easy to use, great with Netflix and Hulu. We are cancelling dish network since getting the nooks. Now we can conveniently watch tv shows and movies when and where we want to. We did have an issue with an app that froze up one of the nooks. We could not get it to turn on or anything. I thought I would have to return it, but I plugged the Nook into the computer via the USB cable that is part of the charger wall charger and it brought it back to life. I guess we need to be careful of the apps we download. Other than that, the screen is great, sound is pretty good, and it's more convenient than a laptop for watching videos, playing games, or surfing the net. You will not be disappointed with a Nook. The screen size is much better than a 7 inch tablet as well.

    My daughter has been wanting a tablet for some time but I have not gotten one because I didn't want to be saddled with a kiddie tablet that I felt she would lose interest in quickly. On the other hand, I don't feel she is old enough for a regular tablet, and still needs "policed" on the internet. I couldn't seem to find a happy medium. Welcome, the Nook. Setting up a child profile for her means I can pick every single thing she has access to. I on the other hand, can have all the awesome apps I like (like facebook and chrome) under my own profile. She can access it without a password. The screen was responsive, I downloaded quite a few things, none of them had problems and they were all very quick. I didn't use the "quick guide" on the tablet, I chose to figure it out myself by playing around with it and I am sure there will be many other things I find out by continuing this way until I give it to her. I couldn't be happier, it feels solid and did more than I had hoped for. Nook hit a homerun with this one.

    I have been in technology for over 20 years. People don't know about the Nook series of tablets, but they are one of the highest quality tablets out there. Its major limitation was only being able to run apps from the Nook marketplace. Now the tablet has access to the full Google play store. The only other limitation is a camera. It doesn't have a front or rear camera. If it had a camera, then this would be the best tablet available in its price range. Since we all carry a cell phone now days, you can use Dropbox to instantly have your pictures from your phone on the tablet. This eliminates some of the pain of not having a camera. The only other camera limitation is not being able to video chat from the tablet. Having said all that this tablet has some of the best hardware you can get. The screen is HD+ so it is beautiful and vibrant and on par with similar pads and even the Retina display on the iPad. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. I intend to by more for the other members of my family. If Barnes and Noble adds a camera, it will be impossible to beat this tablet for its value and quality.

    All the things Nook already has plus the google Play Store now, so most of the apps you can get on your phone, now on here. Needed another computer for internet ( apps, social media, banking, email, video, sports, music, ect ) without having to turn on the laptop and all the windows junk. Perfect mix of phone speed and ease, and computer size & speed. Loads up right away. Super customizable. Good interface home screen. Plenty of memory + you can add more with SD card. HD screen is great. Lightweight. WiFi connects easily. Battery lasts hours playing games & on internet. Only downsides are, uses older android version, some apps dont work like they dont on certain phones, no camera. I think someone looking for top of the line tech wouldnt be looking here, and everybody already has cameras or phones. Unless you need specific functions of the 300 buck tablets or just spend cash freely, there is no reason to spend that much on a tablet. This is a perfect tablet or second computer or complimentary device.

    Now that Nook HD+ is updated (software version 2.1) with Google Play store and price has been dropped to $149, I belive this has become a compelling buy. I bought one 4 days ago and have been playing with it. I am very pleased with the screen resolution, colors, streaming video quality, good reading experience. Nook Hd+ has some great spec.s for the price! And now the drop in price put the tablet in "buy now' category. I went and got it and seriously like it compared to many "cheap" budget tablets I tried. The only thing better would be a more expensive 10" Samsung, Asus or Acer tablets. For me this was as good as I can get now.
