Barnes & Noble did a bit of flip-flopping today, saying it will continue making tablets like the Nook HD+ (above) after all
The latest crop of Nook tablets now runs the full suite Google Play services, making them a much better value
Amazon gets a lot of credit for starting the budget tablet craze with the original Kindle Fire. But it was actually Barnes & Noble that released the first subsidized, affordable, 7-inch slate, in the form of 2010's Nook Color. The three generations of B&N's Nook tablets may have been limited by their software, but they also delivered solid hardware and good overall bang for your buck. So we weren't complaining today, when B&N announced that it won't be discontinuing its color Nook tablets after all.
