Barnes & Noble has announced a new Mother’s Day sales promotion that discounts their Nook HD and HD+ to just $149 and $179 respectively. The HD+ seems to be the better of the two deals with a cool $90 off MSRP. If you asked a us a week ago if this were a good deal, we might have said meh, it’s a good tablet, but it seriously lacks apps. But since B&N have updated these two tablets with access to Google’s Play Store and its over 700,000 apps and games, there’s no better way to say it, than GET ONE. The fact that you can buy a tablet that features a 9-inch HD display, a 1.5GH dual core processor, cinema sound and all of Google’s apps, is outstanding.
It may not have a quad-core processor or Retina display, but for most consumers, the Nook HD at these prices is a steal. The sale only latest until May 12th, so if your Mom (or you) need a tablet—now is the time to buy!
