Google Play Now Available For Nook HD And Nook HD+

Barnes & Noble announced on Friday that Google Play is now available on the Nook HD and the Nook HD+. Before now, the tablets were in a walled garden of sorts and were only allowed to install applications from Nook’s own store. Now, they’re able to access more than 700,000 Android applications and tons of music and video content. That means you can, essentially, turn your Nook HD or Nook HD+ eReader into a full-fledged Android tablet.

“By adding Google Play to NOOK HD and NOOK HD+, we are offering our customers even more great entertainment on our award-winning tablets,” said William Lynch, chief executive officer of Barnes & Noble. “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.”

The update will begin rolling out to customers in the United States and the U.K. today and requires a Wi-Fi connection.
