"Beware - your digital subscriptions won't work."0.5 starson by acutting
Pros: Nice hardware.
Cons: Android Apps don't work. It's crippled. If you have a digital subscription delivered by an Android App you're SOL.
Summary: I received my new Nook tablet today, charged it, and with great anticipation went to find my favorite magazine, The Economist. I found it in the B&N App Store as expected, but found no way to access it without buying it($10.49/mo)again... I already have a print subscription that gives me full access to the digital edition on the iPhone/iPad, Android, and even on the Blackberry. I called tech support for help and was told that, even though this is an Android device, the standard Android Apps have been disabled. I was told that I would have to buy a duplicate subscription through the B&N store if I want to read The Economist on my Nook. It seemed like an absurd statement, so I asked to speak with a supervisor. To my astonishment he made, with an apparently straight face, the same absurd statement.
