Three years ago I bought a Nook Color. i loved it. Used it mostly as a reader, but liked the ability to check email, this forum, etc.
Last year I bought a Nook HD as i wanted the ability to stream HULU and stream movies to TV using HDMI connector. Loved it for about 5 weeks, until the ability to use ADE for my public library went away. Ok I still love it, but would prefer the native reader to having to use Overdrive, even if I have to sideload the books. The HD is a great tablet.
Yesterday my wife and I were visiting several pawn shops (she likes to shop for jewelry for various family members and I can't complain about the prices.) I saw several NCs and NTs and pointed out that trying to sell them for $65-$99 was going to be a tough sell since B&N had the HD for $79. Then I came across an NT (Nook Tablet) priced at $42.95. I negotiated a bit just to see where it would go and when it got to $35 plus tax I had to get it. It is 8GB, screen looks great, and it works like it is new. I hadn't realized how adjusted I was to the HD until I started working the NT, but my old NC experience came back quickly. Got it registered, and ADE authorized, HULU and Netflix registered, sideloaded a library book, and then started having fun.
Ok, Google Play Store is nice. HDMI out is nice. But I have to say the NT is a great tablet, especially for $35! If you are browsing this forum and don't own a Nook of any kind yet, check out the pawn shops and get an NT.
Now....you want to here the funny thing???? I just ordered a 360 stand/cover that cost me almost $26!!!
Loving my "obsolete" tech!!!!
