    Google Play? Angry Birds?

      Just opened and charged my new 16GB Nook Tablet. Nice size! My 11-year-old son had purchased a Nook Color late last year, which we upgraded to Cyanogen 7.  I don't see a need to do that yet on this tablet.


      HOWEVER - I go to the Nook store and they're asking $3.00 for Angry Birds. I already have AB on my Google Play (formerly Market) account.  

       

      HOWEVER - there's no Google Play on the Nook.  What gives?

       

      How do I get this?/

          There was (and is) no google play on the stock NC, either. 

           

          You need to root your NT if you want to install other vendors' software, or you can run CM7 or CM9 off of internal memory or an SD card.

            What you really wanted was a tablet. The Nook Tablet is only tablet in Name. If you want a tablet experience you'll have tor return and buy a real tablet, or you'll need to go the route of others in this forum and get a N2A card or go to the XDA Forums and make your own. Its easy to make your own and there are tutorials and videos.

            Don't call it a Tablet!

              You may want to check the androidfornook.com.  It's the same as N2A and they offer a direct download for $10.  I just purchased the 16gb card for $30 and should be getting it today or tomorrow.  I plan on putting adding a review once I've had a chance to play with it.  :smileyvery-happy:

               

              I almost purchased the n2a card, but decided on the AFN due to price and upgrade options.  Updates are free with this card, you won't have to buy a new one, when ice cream sandwich comes out.

                  I think you made the correct choice.  I originally got the N2A card, then did a download of the AndroidForNook image and created my own for a second NT.  The video on the N2A card was terrible -- jerky and out of sync.  I tried to work with the N2A people but they had no solution.  I play identical video files on the AndroidForNook card flawlessly.  Also, the AFN image is smoother than the N2A.  So I backed up the N2A image (just in case), then re-imaged the SD card with an AndroidForNook image.
