Barnes and Noble Nook HD and Nook HD+ get full access to Google Play Store

Barnes and Noble to release update for Nook HD and HD+ to provide full access to Google Play Store

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: May 3, 2013 10:34 am

Barnes and Noble has announced that their Nook HD and Nook HD+ will gain full access to the Google Play Store. One of the long-running complaints has been that the Nook HD, often touted as an excellent Android implementation, has a limited selection of apps due to the use of Barnes and Noble's own app store.

That's all going to change now that the Nook HD and HD+ have full access to the Google Play Store. The selection of apps for these excellent devices has just increased by a massive amount. Barnes and Noble will be issuing a software update that will bring Google Play directly to the desktop.


William Lynch, chief executive officer of Barnes & Noble:

By adding Google Play to NOOK HD and NOOK HD+, we are offering our customers even more great entertainment on our award-winning tablets. Now with access to more than 700,000 apps and the best reading experience available, NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ are must-see products for entertainment lovers looking for high-quality tablets at incredibly low prices.
