Samsung Galaxy Tab A Nook

Samsung Galaxy Tab a Nook
So today has been quite the day for me. I’ve had trouble with my Nook HD+ battery not keeping a charge for quite some time, so I finally bought a battery from Amazon, and that bit me in the ass big time because now the touchscreen doesn’t work anymore. I removed the battery and finally got the touchscreen to work again, but then when I went to the gym and the touchscreen wasn’t working… again.

Lucky for me there’s a Barnes & Noble next door to my gym, so I went over there and bought a new Nook. This Nook is a Samsung Galaxy Tab A and it has 2 camera’s, 1GB of ram, 8GB memory and it’s small enough that it actually fits in my gym shorts pocket.

My new Nook is my 3rd Nook so far. My first Nook is the original Nook e-ink reader with the little color touchscreen at the bottom. That was great for reading e-books, and it’s still a good e-book reader if I ever want to read a e-book outside, which is practically never. My 2nd Nook is the Nook HD+ that my life partner bought for me for Christmas 2013 and that has been a very good tablet for me, but I could barely install anything since it didn’t have a lot of ram installed, and most apps require 1GB or better. Before the screen stopped responding I scrolled through the Google Play store list of all the apps I’ve downloaded in the past and I think only 10 or 20 were even compatible with my Nook HD+. It’s frustrating when you want to use a specific app and you can’t even install it on a bigger tablet. So I’m happy to have this new upgrade. This new tablet is 2 years old, so it’s not new technology, but it is newer than my 5 year old Nook HD+.

So I bought a new case for it and a 64GB MicroSD card on Amazon, and I am glad I checked my order because I bought a case for a 10 inch tablet, so I had to cancel that. It’s too bad because it was a really nice case. I didn’t want to buy one from Barnes & Noble because they are $40 and I could buy a good one from Amazon for $10- $15, but at this point I just don’t want to have to wait because I’m afraid I’m going to break it on the treadmill without a case, so I will just buy a case when I go back to the gym on Sunday. I’ll just wait for the microSD card to come from Amazon.

I’ll be returning the Nook HD+ battery to the post office on Monday since our neighborhood post office is closed until then.
