Reviews and Problems with Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet

Good hardware device - a e-reader with a few additional features
8 July 2012
Summary: I have the 512MB RAM version of tablet and got it for around $150. At this price point this is a very good device. I was looking for a tablet which is not priced abnormally high (like the iPad) or whose future was questionable (like Blackberry) or who's OS app ecosystem was not working out (many others). Also compared to the Kindle this appeared to be a better device, even though Amazon's marketplace is better and more free stuff -- I prefer a better device anytime.
Excerpt: The nook tablet was a gift to be last year for my birthday, and while the device had a great feel and look to it. The nook was not really for me because the product selection was a bit too small for me and the Kindle just fit my needs better. The battery life was pretty darn good for an android device as it lasted for a while. The processor was also speedy and never seemed to give me any trouble. The Nook Tablet was a bit heavy.
Excerpt: I was not impressed with the Nook from Barnes & Noble. First let me say that I got this as a gift from my kids because I go to Barnes & Noble quite a bit. Naturally they all thought this would be a perfect fit. I have been disappointed in what I can download without spoending a fortune. Most of the books cost nearly as much as the actual hard version of the title. There were far more titles available for the Kindle from Amazon.
Great Tablet for Those Who Aren't Sure They Want a Tablet

Excerpt: I really debated getting a tablet since I wasn't sure how much I would use it. I decided that the best bet was to get a lower priced version so I could see if I really used it and felt comfortable with it. I was also unsure about getting network access which is available on the more expensive tablets. The Nook works as promised and I have been pleased with the overall performance.
