I debated between the Samsung Tablet and the Nook. The Nook had 32GB versus 8GB for the Samsung AND was [$] cheaper. I believe I made the right choice. It is easy to use and 10X faster that the Acer netbook which I have sold.
Now the 7" Nook HD and 9" HD plus have the Google Play Store. There are over 700,000 apps to choose from, and many of them free. Play Minecraft, and get Candy Crush or Templerun for FREE. This tablet has great specs, and right now it's 100 off plus another 10 off with the Red card this week. Awesome screen, and very snappy. This is a full blown tablet now. Get it asap!
