  • 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).

    I really love my new NOOK HD+! It's very easy to use and books, magazines and movies look amazing. It's much lighter than other tablets and my friends are definitely jealous. The ability to set-up profiles for my kids is also useful and something I've done to allow them to share the device without worrying about them playing with my books and magazines.

    As someone that reads a lot of books while traveling, I have found the Nook HD to be the most effective product on the market. Its cheaper and less bulky than the IPad, which my fiance owns and I find it easier to read on. The HD screen is also great for movies. Again, as someone that travels frequently, I have found it easy to watch movies and the quality is excellent. Lastly, I find the simplicity of the Nook to be much more convenient than the competing products. Overall, I really enjoy this product.

    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.

    Got this as a gift for my mother, and gave it a test drive after. Great full screen (9 inch) tablet for the price. Very light and easy to hold for long reading sessions or for watching a movie. Its bright high resolution screen is perfect for books. This uses a 'skinned' version of the Android OS. So it is somewhat restricted/limited as to what you can do with it. That said, the less tech savvy will probably find it far more intuitive than a standard android tablet. Downside is the smaller media library (fewer apps and movies) than other tablets. The internal speaker also isn't very loud. But if you are looking for a large tablet for reading primarily and maybe to watch some movies and play some app games on occasion; this is the tablet for you. Now to address some complaints I saw. Yes, on occasion the internet browser might freeze; but this is common to any tablet I've ever used, iPad 4th gen, android and anything inbetween. It happens, but not often. It comes with instructions, a little pull out graphic-based overview of things. No especially detailed book, but I don't imagine that would be any easier to deciffer for most. Otherwise compared to most other tablets, it's not too hard to navigate and use. As for account issues; my mother was able to log into hers just fine, and I was able to do the same. So not sure the problem there.

    • 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. :)
