Detailed review
The nook hd+ has a beautiful screen and and a very long battery. Comic books and magazines look great. With heavy use, I can get about 9.5 to 10 hours out of the device. The web browser functions, but isn't perfect.

The barnes and noble store loads, but many apps aren't designed for the hd+ yet. I think this will get better with time. Also, there is no good way for managing which account has permission to an app. Instead of controlling this from the system settings, you have to go into the shop and search for the app. Sloppy.

The email app works well with both yahoo and gmail. The images don't load by default and I wish there was a way to change this. Otherwise, emails load quickly and efficiently.

The hd+ connects to my bluetooth quickly and easily. The sound works across pandora, netflix, etc..

Overall, this is a great device for the price. The screen resolution is so good you won't see any pixels on magazines, comic books, or in the rendered text. The device is light for a tablet. Although not perfect, I'm quite happy with this device for its price.
