Barnes & Noble Nook HD Tablet Review
If you're a fan of apps, widgets, streaming content, or games, this is a tablet to skip.
Included in the installed software for the Barnes & Noble Nook HD is an email app that can sync inboxes from POP/IMAP or exchange clients, and that's it. There's no GMail app, either, so you'll be forced to use the browser if you have a GMail inbox. Anyways, simply follow the wizard to set up your inbox and your email will automatically be sent to your tablet from here on out. You can do all the things you'd normally do with email, though it's generally tougher as the touchscreen is so small, and you can't pair a bluetooth keyboard with the unit to type.
The web browser included with the Barnes & Noble Nook HD isn't anything special, but it gets the job done more or less. On the top is the standard URL bar with basic functions like back/forward/bookmark, which hides after you haven't touched the screen for a few seconds. You can pinch to zoom in or out on pages, tap to open links, and hold down your finger to select text.
