Much like Amazon, Barnes & Noble has their own line of tablets, though not nearly as popular. Their most notable tablets are the Nook HD and Nook HD+, and for Woot.com’s deal of the day today, you can get up to three 8GB Nook HD’s for $89.99.
Currently, through Barnes & Noble, the device is on sale for $129.99, so this is a pretty impressive deal. So, what does $89.99 get you? A 7-inch IPS LCD screen capable of 1,440 x 900 resolution, rated at 243ppi, a dual-core 1.3GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by 32GB via a microSD card. On the software side of things, the Nook HD is running Android 4.0.
There are some pretty decent specs there for being only $89.99, however, the biggest disappointment is the lack of a GPS, along with those rear and front cameras. If you can get past that, the Nook HD is really a nice tablet. If you can’t, well, it’s a great toy for the kids!
$89.99 really is a good price for this device, especially since Barnes and Noble recently opened up the tablet a bit more by finally allowing access to the Google Play Store and its 700,000+ apps. That alone adds a lot of value to this device.
Now, this tablet is a Factory Reconditioned product, meaning it isn’t brand new. However, it’s still as close to new as you can get.
And hey, if you don’t plan on using the Play Store’s assortment of apps, the Nook HD is still a great device for book reading and media consumption. If you’re interested, you’ll need to act soon — the deal ends in 15 hours or until sold out.
