I love my Nook :) - let's start there. A simple, easy to understand declarative sentence. Great size - not too big, not too small. B & N has really stepped up and has made a plethora of eBooks available at a VERY REASONABLE price [read SMALL PRICE]. Great color on the display, great sound [ok, I'm spoiled, I wirelessly connect to my Bose speakers so the music sounds GREAT ;-)]. Speaking of wireless, instantly connect to the Interwebz. I use Opera mini - very fast, minimal overhead. So, with all this and, this is a LOT how can things get better? Well, how about $49.95? What? Are you kidding me? At that price, get two, heck get three! Seamless updates, excellent in every respect. What are you waiting for? Christmas? oh... wait ;^D

I have many Nooks which I have enjoyed using. I own the predecessor Nook 7 inch and like it very much especially for the SDHC cad slot where I can organise my books in any way I choose. With more onboard memory I can have more books, update more apps easily. For the price it is amazing value.

Note: I've had my unit for about two weeks. First off, for $50 this is a fantastic Android-based 7-inch product. I chose this over the similar Amazon product for one reason: This B&N product supports the full Google Play store right out of the box with no having to side-load anything to get the same functionality. Love it. Was easily able to login with my Google account and start sycning and installing apps easy peasy. Please note that I didn't buy this to get into the B&N ecosystem (sorry B&N!). I simply wanted a 7-inch tab as an extension of my existing Android world, including a Gen1 Pixel, for long reads and game-playing. I have no interest in paying $$$ for a 6-inch phone. Forget it. I buy most of my stuff from Amazon/Kindle or Google. That said, this is, essentially, exactly what I wanted and I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Beyond that, here are my Pros and Cons: Pros: 1. Cost: Are you kidding me? $50 is a steal for what you get! 2. Speed: Fast enough. It's slower than my Google Pixel (Gen1) and I can tell the difference but not a problem in general. 3. Form Factor: Love the 7-inch form factor. The unit is light and easy to hold for long reads. Easy to one-hand for most functions (other than typing) for my paws (I'm male, 6-ft) 4. Form Factor: Flipping to landscape mode converts many apps to that aspect, so you get the functionality while still having a light, one-handable unit. Cons: 1. Memory: Because the unit has only 1GB of RAM it's limited to using the "Go" version of most Google apps, which are specifically designed to be used with low-RAM Android devices. Not the end of the world but it's a bit annoying because the settings/features parity between the "Go" and "Standard" versions differ in some cases. So, setting things up wasn't exactly plug-n-play for me for those apps. 2. Screen: The color saturation is washed out compared to my other Android devices, no matter the screen brightness. The screen is nice but the colors seem almost faded, if that makes sense. Not a deal breaker but noticeable. 3. Audio: The sound out of the single speaker is pretty weak compared to the dual speakers on my Pixel (Gen1). Just providing context. 4. Storage: Added a 256G SD card for additional storage and the OS sucked up 128G of it. Plenty left, but still. 5. Storage: The Android 8.1 version on the unit doesn't combine the internal and external storage into one big pool of storage. The issue being that you must manually specify what gets copied/stored on the external storage so that you don't unknowingly fill up the 16G internal storage. Haven't seen this except on older versions of Android. This is super annoying for me. 6. Haptics: No haptic feedback. This is really annoying because I'm so used to feeling the little buzz on each button press on my other devices. Like most of these issues, not a deal breaker for a $50 tablet. 7. Charging: Micro-USB charging port on the top is annoying as heck. Everything else I have has the charging port on the bottom or bottom side left/right. Again, not the end of the world but when I use the unit plugged in the cable tends to want to pull the top of the unit down, so I feel like I'm constantly fighting with it. 8. Cameras: Absolutely suck. Both of them. Period. But, I didn't buy this thing to take pics, so there you go. All that said, beyond the Cons listed above I'm completely happy with my purchase. This device gives you a lot for $50

I was looking for a compact reader at a reasonable price and I found it in this NOOK! I am impressed with its design (7" works well with smaller hands) and the fact that its run through the Android platform. Easy to set up and use for reading! The price is also unbeatable for what you can do with this NOOK. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a small reader with internet and application access.
