Nook HD+

I got the Nook HD+ a few days ago.  I was not planning on upgrading from my Nook Tablet, but the sale price from now until Mother's Day and the addition of Google Play helped me to change my mind.   Currently the 16 GB Nook HD+ is $179.  It is normally $269.   The screen is a 9" HD display.  It is so gorgeous that I could not put it down.

Why would I buy a Nook versus another tablet?   I am at the core a reader.  I like to see my books and organize them just like I do with my physical books.  I also like to surf the web, use Springpad and play Scramble with Friends.   I also have a phone where I can use many apps so a tablet that was pure Android was not my priority.  

I picked a Nook tablet a few years because it was for readers and I could read books from the library.   You could not always read library books on the Kindle which pushed me towards the Nook.  Don't get me wrong, I think the Kindle is a great product and I would not have said no if you gave me one.  Today, you can borrow library books and read them on your Kindle

The addition of Google Play makes the Nook go from just an e-reader to a good Android tablet.   People use to complain that you could only buy apps from Barnes and Nobles store, but now they have knocked down that wall.  If you are in the market for pure Android then this tablet is not for you.   I would suggest getting the Google Nexus 7 if you want a pure Android experience. My husband has the Nexus 7 and it is great with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).  He lets me use it every now and then.  :)

Even with a recommendation for a Nexus 7 for those who are not "readers" like me I think you might be pleasantly surprised by the Nook HD+.    

I like the Nook HD+ because:

  • Books can be organized. 
  • The screen is large and beautiful.
  • Profiles can be created for my children to filter the content that they see and to prevent them from accessing my profile.
  • Google Play is available which means I have access to so many apps.


All of the Nook HD and HD + devices are on sale now starting at $149 until Sunday, May 12.
