I have been looking for a low-cost 7" tablet for some time now. My ideal was something that would be well-built, multi-functional and easily portable. I have a MacBook Air and an iPad, but wasn't interesting in investing in an iPad Mini. I tried the Kindle Fire HD when it was on sale for $159, but wasn't thrilled by it. Its limited app ecosystem turned me off. I tried a couple of "off-brand" tablets, but immediately returned them. Then I tried the Nook HD. I have been thrilled with it. Like many others, I have been thrilled by the decision to update to include Google's array of services, including gmail, Google+ and (most importantly) the Play Store. So, amazingly, on this B&N tablet, I can install an Amazon Kindle app for my Kindle books, while also benefitting from Nook's array of media. It's a win-win- all of which is achievable without rooting the device. Even though this is a secondary device for me, I have been using it consistently and I highly recommend it whether you are in my position or simply looking for a solid, multi-functional tablet device!!
