    I have a Nook HD+...

    LectorGS

      I have the Nook HD+, which so far has been working fine.  I also have the iPad 4, which I use more to fulfill my job-related needs.  Even though they are both tablets, they are not completely comparable.  The question I have is the following:  Do you think it’s a good thing to keep the HD+, especially now with abundant rumors about B&N quitting the production of tablets?  Is selling it a good decision?

       

      Some advice will be appreciated.

          Why would you get rid of it?  Basically, what has been announced is that B&N is going to outsource production of new tablets, but that doesn't in any way affect the functioning of the one you have,

            You say that the HD+ and the iPad are not comparable, but you don't say if the iPad can meet all your needs (or maybe I'm misuderstanding).  If it does, sell the HD+, as the $$ you'll get for it now is likely more than it will be once holiday devices are announced.

             

            If you're not enjoying the iPad, then definitely keep the HD+.  You already own it, so if you enjoy it, why make a change?

                I have a 3rd generation iPod touch that I bought in December 2009. It won't run iOS 6, but it still does everything I need.  None of my apps have quit working.  In fact, I am glad that I don't have to deal with software upgrades anymore. I intend to keep it until it quits.  I plan to do the same with my HD+. Even if B&N goes out of business (which I don't see happening anytime soon), I expect all my books, magazines and apps to keep working as long as the device is. Even if B&N were to quit selling ebooks, I could still use Kindle, Kobo, or Google play apps to read books. I think the HD+ is a great value at the current price. You just need to decide what meets your needs.

                Even IF there are to be no future Nooks (which, as far as I can tell is unlikely), you HD+ will continue to function as it does now for several years.  If it is serving a purpose to you now, keep it.  There's no sense in selling something useful and/or enjoyable just because it won't be updated or superceded.
