GREAT 3rd Gen Nook!
6 November 2013
Summary: The best non-android Nooks. I have been completely satisfied with this model of Nook and it is the perfect reader and part-time tablet. My only problems are that it doesn't use Google Play like the more recent models and downloading apps is quite a tedious process. Overall, though, this is an amazing device and I like that I got such a GREAT deal for it.
only if you Surf and listen to music ; with Cynogenmod then you'll love it

Summary: Good design, good display good screen-touch response -I'd say equal to an IPAD2. Bad - locked down B&N system it'll play music, videos, show pictures and surf all great but that's essentially all. Everything about it is really designed as a conveyer belt to buying content books/apps from B&N. Also power/synch cable limiting rather than some normal standard. No camera (not an issue for me; no bluetooth - really wish that was present.
Summary: good for adults and kids...light weight..can take to work or school..very clear screen..bought this for my mom but the kids always take it over..works the same as ipad..netflix works great...wifi is good..color is ok..good product for price.
Summary: I like the unit as a whole but I don't like what Barnes and Noble did to it. B&N have engineered the software so you can only get apps from B&N and the prices are often, exorbitant. Being charged at all for an app that is FREE from the Google Play store is kind of an outrage. As an eBook reader, It's pretty good, Battery life is very good, The display is crisp and clear and vibrant. It does tend to have issues with memory like all android devices.
Summary: The Nook tablet is a good sized tablet for reading and consuming eBook and other multimedia content. However, its OS is slower than the iPad, and its smaller screen size does carry some liability for reading email and text input. Its obviously much cheaper than the iPad, so it is not a direct competitor. It will be a good option for kids, which was the intended audience for my purchase.
Summary: I have been considering buying a tablet computer for a while. Recently a relative of mine got the Nook simple touch and I was really impressed with it. Then last week I saw this sale on ebay for the Nook Tablet 8gb for $149.00. I couldn't pass it up. When I first received it in the mail, I noticed that there was a small chip in the silver cover to the left of the headphones jack.
Great gui, feel and capacitance touch. But lack of apps is its limitation.

Summary: I have tested and used this Nook Tablet for a week now; I can say that the GUI interface and capacitance touch is much better that any other Android tablet in the market. The only problem this Nook Tablet has is its lack of FREE apps and apps in general on the market and the Internet web browser. I have all 3 tablets, the iPad, Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet. I love the Nook Tablet for its ease of use, weight, feel and the ability of adding a 32 GB micro SD card.
