Great Color E-Reader With Extra Features
The Nook tablet is a great color e-reader with the “bonus” of being able to read your email, shop on Amazon.com, surf the web, watch tv shows on Hulu Plus, movies on Netflix, and listen to the world’s largest selection of music on Pandora Radio. I added a 16gb sd card filled with thousands of my favorite songs. But, the Nook is designed to be an ereader…it is not a games tablet, or an IPad.

I got my Nook Tablet (8gb version) from Barnes & Noble because of the extra discount I got with my B&N membership…the price was MUCH less than advertised by most internet venders. I already have a Brand X color e-reader and a Nook Simple Touch reader. My old color reader was hard on my eyes for long reading sessions, the Nook Touch is great for books, but it does not have internet access or play music and magazines don’t really work without a color screen.

The Nook tablet has very sharp, clear, and contrasty fonts and is very pleasant to read, even for several hours…
Good Hardware – terrible OS and App availability
Pros:
The hardware is nice, I have the 8GB – Its fast, responsive and the screen is beautiful. Great for reading books and netflix. Battery life – Read ‘Catching Fire’ and ‘Mockingjay’ on a single charge. Email and web are decent too – nothing special.

Cons:
The B&N Nook OS and the B&N App selection are both terrible. The Nook OS is counter-intuitive and not user friendly, there is no BACK button!? Take a toll of how often you use the BACK button on your phone or android device and you’ll realize how annoying the lack of this simple common-place feature is. You can hit the ‘N’ and go back to home any time – though often I wanted to go Back, not start over. The selection of apps in the app store are laughable. I literally could not find a single app I wanted, even searching apps that they advertise like Comics for nook (not installed? not available?). I found a few apps for $4.99+ that i have downloaded for free on Itunes and Google play (android market)…
Biggest Deal Around
If you buy this from a B&N store, and are a member of B&N, you can get this for $174, which is cheaper than the 8 gig Fire. If you already are loaded with Kindle books, B&N foolishly doesn’t have a Kindle app, but you can, on Amazon or n2a.com buy an n2a card which allows you to boot your Nook up as a full Android complete with access to the Android Market (or whatever Google is calling it now), and get the Kindle app to accress all your Kindle books. Since I love the design of the eReader on the Nook, I use my n2a card only when I want a Kindle book. I find the B&N Nook books are usually the same price as Kindle. Occasionally, Kindle doesn’t have a book I want but Nook does. Also, Nook may not have a book Kindle has. Also, Nook books have the page perfect series, as well as Enhanced Editions with embedded videos and audio clips, neither of which Kindle has.

The Nook has a tab for “My Stuff” so you can drag things from your PC to the Nook. If you want more space for…
