I treated myself to an ereader/tablet. Bought a new Nook HD+ for $150. Had $50 in gift cards so I said why not. I was reluctant to do so before I got paid but as we all know Nooks will be no more very soon so I bought before they were all gone. (lol yeah right) And although they won't sell them support will still be there, even if it is just for a year or so. Why did I buy one you may ask? Well, I like reading manga but it's too pricey etc. Why the Nook HD+ you ask? Really it was for the microSD slot and we all know why. Jailbreak it and I'm good. Really only downside is no GPS (have an iPhone) and no camera (have an iPhone), and the charger port is not a microUSB (have an iPhone). I am curious though, what are you top picks for tablets regardless of price? With the Nook HD+ in mind for $150, what do your think is the most cost effective tablet on the market?
