  • There are 700,000 plus Android apps and games available from Google Play.™
  • You can get to Youtube™, Google Maps™ and your Gmail.
  • The tablet uses Chrome™(my favorite Internet browser) for fast web browsing results.
  • Barnes and Noble has millions of books and magazines to choose from.
  • There are thousands of popular movies and tv shows to see.
  • The 9" full HD display is stunning.

But is it worth it?

For the price it is a great deal and Google Play™really makes it more an Android tablet than an eReader.

So the answer is yes! This tablet is worth it. Check out the slideshow for more information.

Pros:

  • It is easy to use. If you like YouTube, Gmail, and Google Maps, then this is all you need.
  • Keeps a battery charge for a reasonable time (9-10.5 hours). (Set the brightness to low and turn off the Wi-Fi when not connecting to the Net.)
  • There are plenty of accessories available.
  • Movies play well, but only certain file types, so check with B&N.
  • Micro SDHC card allows you add movies and documents. A real plus!
  • Read NOOK books free in B&N stores.
  • Multiple user profiles on one tablet.
  • The Nook logs in at any B&N store and you can ask for free help. Another real plus!

Cons:

  • Heavier than most tablets, but lighter than the Kindle Fire.
  • One cannot recharge the battery until it is below 20%.
  • Power save needs to be reset so it does not go to sleep while reading.
  • The cons are not a problem for me.

This tablet does everything one expects a tablet to do.

Two thumbs up for a tablet that is first an eReader, but then useful as an Android tablet.
