Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ Tablet Review
It might work in a pinch for an uncomplicated tablet, but the Nook HD+ falls flat.
In a tablet world where content exists across all platforms, and there are high-end tablets coming out at a more affordable price, there's very little reason to pay too much for a unit that offers you so much less for only a couple dollars cheaper. It would be one thing if there was a concrete advantage to buying the Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ over an iPad mini or Nexus device, but there really isn't.
Not only can the other top-flight tablets do everything the Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ can do, but they can also do much more for a comparable price point. Maybe that's why Barnes & Noble added a microSD card slot and the ability to easily hack the device? Who knows?
With comparably poor performance across the board at a similar price point to its main competitors, there is very little reason to buy the Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ if you're not looking for a project, and still want access to the wealth of media available to iPad or Android tablet owners. While it might work in a pinch for a crowd that wants an uncomplicated tablet, you may or may not want to wait for a sale to grab this one.
