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. There is a night mode, and also a sephia mode for reading in bed without bothering anyone else. Magazines look great on its color screen. I listen to music on Pandora while I read, and when I am tired of reading, I can watch a movie on Netflix or a tv show on TV.com. I installed the Dolphin browser which uses tabs so I can switch quickly among various web pages.
Vevo music videos look great, but the Nook's speaker is too weak to enjoy music. However, music sounds great through good ear buds and when I plug the Nook into my computer speakers.
The Nook is an e-reader, NOT an I-Pad or high powered tablet. It does not have access to Google Play to obtain apps, so you are limited to the apps in the Nook app store. Those apps have been developed just for the Nook and its seven inch screen.Read more ›
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.
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).
BUY THIS - N2A (TM) - 32GB Nook to Android bootable microSD Card for the Nook Color
Takes the Good hardware of the Nook Tablet and replaces the useless OS with trusted Full Android. Read the reviews, they are all true! Before i bought this card, the nook was basically useless and frustrating - now I have an android tablet and since it is NOT rooted, still have warranty too, though I recommend squaretrade. Check my N2A review for more info.
Update: I have had this tablet for over 6 months now and love it. I have had no issues and all my friends and family want one. Note: I use this exclusively with the N2A card in Android mode. N2A recently emailed me with the update from Gingerbread to Jellybean and its working great and their customer service is excellent. I cannot recommend this company/product enough.
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 your stuff, you can get any sized san disk for the Nook. I have a 32 gb one because I transferred about 4,000 pictures to my Nook and am using an app to edit the pictures and then make slide shows of them. Then I'll drag the shows back onto my computer and burn them to disc. Did I mention the Nook is a joy to use? I actually got thre 16gig Tablet but the 8 gig is as fast and has the 11 1/2 hour battery as well as allows the same cards to be added.
Note: In the interst of comparing similarly priced models, I'll compare the 8GB Nook Tablet with the 8GB Kindle Fire which are currently the same price.
Nook hardware is better than Kindle hardware. The Nook has an internal microphone and an expansion slot for a MicroSD card. Expandable memory is a huge deal. The Kindle Fire does have the old "Gorilla Glass", but that's a minor point. The Nook also has more glare-resistant glass. The ergonomics of the Nook are better as well.
Nook software is draconian. The operating system is a neutered version of the Android OS and the Google Market is off-limits. The software library is very small and almost nothing is free. This isn't necessarily as bad as it sounds at first though. If you have the technical know-how, you can replace the factory software on the Nook with an alternative OS like Cyanogen Mod. The easiest way to do this is via a specially programmed MicroSD card (which would require that you spend the money on the extra card), although you can also do this by overwriting the internal software as well (note that this IS undoable).
I encourage you to put a 3rd party OS on the device regardless of whether you get a Nook or a Kindle Fire. Either way, by replacing the OS you can read both B&N Books and Kindle books on the same device (as well as use most of the other standard Google Market apps).Read more ›
