Nook Tablet

The latest Nook tablets, now with Google Play access, receive price drops

We've known about the impending demise of the Nook hardware division of Barnes & Noble for some time now, but that's not stopping them from putting out some killer deals on their not-long-for-this-world tablet hardware. Starting today, B&N is dropping the price of the Nook HD and HD+ in the U.K. to just £99 and £149, respectively. The current sale in the U.S. is being extended as well to $129 and $149 for the two versions, which start at 8GB of storage on the Nook HD and 16GB on the HD+.

If you're interested in picking up a cheap tablet that now has access to all of the apps on Google Play with some solid hardware, now may be the time to jump on a Nook. Hit the appropriate source links below to check them out.

I picked up the Nook Tablet HD+ (9") for $150 a few weeks ago. It's a pretty good deal, running CM10.1 (Thanks to VeryGreen) .. Still feels a little laggy though and the touch is not super responsive.. The keyboard lags when typing a URL on Chrome and the pinch to zoom is not responsive.. However, it's hard to complain with a 9" tablet for $150. The screen is very nice, and it's great for watching movies.

Picked up the 32g model today for $179 at Walmart. The colors as resolution are great compared to my old Toshiba thrive, the only question is should I bother to rom it now that it has play access. Although, I probably will eventually.

My thoughts exactly. I picked one up to replace my Nook Color because I do a lot of reading (especially comics and magazines). I was going to get a Nexus 7, but found the screen to be better on the HD+ (color and clarity). I figured I'd root or at least pick up one of the N2A or AFN cards, but with it having access to Google Play I don't think I have a need to, at least not yet. I'm sure I'll get the urge to use Google Now and eventually want to root, but for now it's a great buy. Comics look fan-fuggin'-tastic and my magazine subscriptions do too.
