Barnes & Noble To Give Away Free E-Reader With Every Nook HD+ Tablet

Have you tried the Nook HD+ from Barnes & Noble? I guess most of you haven’t. And that makes Barnes & Noble so desperate to sell its flagship tablet that it has decided to give away a $79 Nook Simple Touch e-reader for free with every purchase.


Nook HD+

The Nook HD+ is a 9-inch tablet that features a full HD display (1920×1080 pixels). It comes in two versions -16GB and 32GB. The 16GB version sells for $269, and the 32GB version sells for $299.

The specs are not top-notch in the market, but good enough for a tablet. However, the tablet lags behind seriously in terms of user experience, performance and some other factors. The software is buggy, load times are slow, user profile switching is even slower, and web browsing experience is definitely not pleasing.

The downside on user experience is not all against Nook HD+. The tablet doesn’t support Google Play. Now, that is a big issue for tablet users.

Hence, Nook HD+ has only one thing to compete on – price. Hence, Barnes & Noble has taken up an aggressive campaign – to offer free Nook Simple Touch e-Ink readers with every purchase of Nook HD+ from March 24 to March 30.

But, who would take the offer? Probably someone who really love e-Ink based tablet, and also want to have the Nook HD+. O, it could be someone who want to keep the Nook HD+ and give away the e-reader as a gift to someone else. If one want to get the package and sell them as separate packages on ebay, one would also love the offer. However, I’m not sure that would be beneficial for Barnes & Noble.
