The good: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ starts at only $149, and has a sharp screen, good performance, and a microSD slot. It's also lightweight and comfortable, and implements magazines and catalogs better than any other tablet.
The bad: There are no cameras, the screen is susceptible to fingerprints, and the OS can feel sluggish at times.
The bottom line: The Nook HD+ is a low-price, quality entry point into the world of tablets, especially now that it has full Google Play support.
