Cheap tablets are not hard to come by, as Amazon's Fire Line is the de facto choice for most consumers. Google Play support is missing on the Fire tablets, but thankfully Barnes & Noble has a newer, larger NOOK tablet.
B & N already sells a 7-inch NOOK. However, if you're looking for something more for Netflix or other video services, the larger model is the best choice. The larger NOOK features a 1
The tablet also has POGO pins for connecting a keyboard cover or dock. At the moment, however, neither price nor availability are mentioned. The battery life is just fine with 8 1/2 hours for video playback and browsing. If you only use this as an e-reader, you will probably take more life with each charge.
A really simple place where manufacturers in this price range can save money on tablets is not using Wi-Fi specifications. Luckily, this is not the case here. You get full support for 5GHZ Wi-Fi, so your app downloads should be nice and fast. After all, you have front and rear cameras, and although they can not compete with smartphone cameras, they are interesting for video calls.
You can also install the NOOK app on other devices, so you do not need this tablet to read your ebook collection. But even if you are not interested in reading long novels, this is still a very interesting product. Amazon's latest Fire HD 10 costs $ 20 more and you'll have to jump through the tire to download applications from the Google Play Store. The Play Store has a much larger app catalog than Amazon, because it is able to turn on the tablet and download all your apps, a great advantage.
If the new NOOK arouses your interest, you can pre-order it now.
