I just got one of these a few weeks back, the 16 g version.
I love it. LOVE it.

It runs the kindle app well. It plays games. It streams Netflix. I just does what I want it to, when I want it to.

Irony (from the Ancient Greek εἰρωνεία eirōneía, meaning dissimulation or feigned ignorance),[1] in its broadest sense, is a rhetorical device, literary technique, or event characterized by an incongruity, or contrast, between reality (what is) and appearance (what seems to be). The term may be further defined into several categories, among which are: verbal, dramatic, and situational.

I loved my Nook Color from the moment I got it, and my Nook HD+ (the 3 generation old one, and the 9" similar to this 7" respectively). If this were a 16 or 32 gig model, I'd pick it up just for a backup.

Amazon has a minority stake in LibraryThing (and has had that minority stake in the company for many years), a direct competitor to GoodReads which they acquired earlier this year. Amazon's too big to not own things they're competing with.

With the recent addition of Google Play, you can now run the Kindle for Android app on this. :P

Seriously, I picked up a reconditioned Nook HD+ (the larger screen version) a little over a week ago to read comics and magazines and I'm loving it. It runs the same firmware as the HD, which is not stock Android, so it takes a little getting used to if you're used to stock Android. It can be rooted and it can be made to boot CyanogenMod and other Android distributions. As far as the reconditioning goes, mine arrived in all the original packaging and appeared to be new other than a sticker sealing the box show that says reconditioned.

Also, I have the Kindle app, Zinio, Comixology, and Dark Horse Comics apps loaded (among others).

If I may, I'd like to give a hearty recommendation of warranties from SquareTrade. Just within the last two weeks, I had a printer that died on me. I'd covered it with a SquareTrade extended warranty. Printer died on a Friday, ST authorized a return, I bought a new printer Saturday & printed out the return label, shipped the dead printer back on Monday, and SquareTrade had an Amazon gift card for the full amount in my email inbox by Tuesday night. An absolutely ideal transaction. If you're going to get a warranty , go with SquareTrade.

That looks like the older Nook model, not the HD. The HD supports Google Play.

I answered my own question before I asked it...

How do I load my own .PDF files onto the Nook?

I've got the 16GB version of this tablet, as well as the larger 32GB HD+ and they are GREAT tablets. While they don't have a camera like the Galaxy Tabs, these are great multimedia android tablets. It's expandable with microSDHC cards, making it incredibly easy to get things on and play/read anything you want (as opposed to my #@&*%! ipad that requires %#@*! itunes).

This is one of those tech purchases that will have legs for many years to come (as opposed to my ipad 1 :/ ).

He's correct, the link goes to the 'Tablet' which is what B&N called the model prior to the HD ones.

I've had both, and the Tablet didn't support Google Play when the HD models got it. This was true very recently, so unless it changed recently the 'Tablet' doesn't have Google Play.

That said, I also have a Nook HD, and it's a great device. It has its quirks, and the almost certain failing of B&N is unfortunate. But it's a purchase I would recommend to a friend.

They recently released Cyanogenmod 10.1 for this so you can completely blitz the Nook-ified Android and replace with standard Android.

I only bought a 2 year ST once with a 30% off coupon code. I never had to use it, the Toshiba Thrive I bought for my daughter never stopped working luckily. So, I had no experience with them. That's excellent information to know. Thanks!

Amazon-held company? Forget Woot ... Amazon itself is selling the Nook. In fact, it sells every model ever made. And many of the reviews prefer the Nook to the Kindle. Gotta give Amazon a lotta credit. Just as I give Woot a lotta credit for allowing to to post links with better prices,

Any bluetooth keyboard should be fine. For example, the budget-minded $12.98 SANOXY Bluetooth Keyboard, which rates 4 stars on Amazon. Although some keys are optimized for the iPad, all standard keys work with all bluetooth tablets. Or the $20 Anker, which has 4.5 stars from 1,312 users.

Cases are a bit more difficult if you want a perfect fit. You can get a generic Neoprene case that which stretch over any 7" tablet or get a case made specifically for this. Depends on your need. If you just want some protection, a $3 Neoprene case is fine. But if you want to use the case as a stand, then youshould get one made specifically for this.

I totally wish I could justify buying something I don't need just for the sake of rooting it because I want to.... But I won't. I think we have enough tablets in our household for now.... but man, I really want to. I'd be selling it on craigslist in a week though, lol

The problem with eBay is that there is generally no warranty. Unless the seller is a bona fide store or company, most manufacturers won't honor the purchase for warranty. A key problem is that there is usually no true receipt or guarantee that the item is truly unused (refurbed is fine; used is not). Second, some companies only deal with "Authorized sellers."

Do you really want to carry around a 7" device to hear audio books? Wouldn't a smaller media/mp3 player be easier?

Mom wants a tablet to watch her media. This would have been a PERFECT purchase if it had a webcam. She wants to do video Skyping and this just can't handle it, not even with an external camera. Oh well.

If you want both a keyboard and case in one unit that is sized specifically for this Nook, you can try the Poetic KeyBook or The MoKo. They also work as a stand to prop up the screen as you type, simulating a laptop.

Just search Amazon, eBay or the web using, "nook 7" hd case bluetooth keyboard."

The Enrichment Center... Sorry, Woot is required to remind you that the Weighted Companion Cube... Er, Nook HD cannot speak. In the event that it does speak, Woot urges you to disregard its advice.

Umm...no. Amazon does not sell the Nook. People sell Nooks on Amazon, just like they would on ebay or any other online marketplace. But no, on amazon.com, the company Amazon does not sell the Nook. So, it could be taken as being noteworthy that Woot is.

For those who are less technical, or don't want to void their warranty, you don't have to replace the Nook Android. You can simply tell it to boot whatever flavor of Android you want, including Google's official version, off an SD card. The cheapest and easiest solution is to download Andoid-For-Nook (AFN) for $9.99.

Love the very informative Info section!

A not-so-objective comparison of the Nook HD and the iPad Mini from B&N. One noted omission is a webcam. In that category, the iPad wins so B&N conveniently leaves that category out. Still, the Nook is a way better value with better specs. Heck, almost any tablet is a way better value than the overpriced iPad.

Are you sincerely asking? Yes, I do. and others who will be using it in the house will. Children? Read and listen to the same book? Judging by the link I posted, someone else was curious too.

Or was it a rhetorical question?

Well, I guess if you really want to read and listen on the same device simultaneously. But as someone who has tried it on another tablet, I can tell you that it's a hassle since there are no dedicated hard buttons to control the audio other than volume. Pausing, etc requires many presses of the screen to access the audio app. Much easier with a separate $14 media player. I can read along with the tablet or an actual book. Plus, I'm usually on the go or exercising when I listen so I don't want to drag a 7" device with me. Especially if I risk breaking it, i.e. while exercising, or getting it wet, i.e. while bathing or washing dishes. Simply forgetting to pull out your headphones while getting up can result in a tablet on the floor with a broken screen. Not to mention a tangled cord. You can use bluetooth, of course. I think for most people, however, an MP3 player or smartphone is the more economical, convenient and safer solution.

The Nook has the ability to view an sd card. I-pads do not. Huge difference.
