Google Play now on Nook HD

Gama News, quoting Mashable has reported that the owners of Barnes & Noble's newest Nook HD tablet will finally be able to visit Google Play to download and install apps from the site.

This is a good news for the Nook HD users as they will now have access to some 700,000 apps in Google Play and the Chrome web browser.

And what is more: Nook HD owners will also get a bonus- Google’s G-mail app, which will operate alongside instead of replacing the Nook HD’s native email app. Further, Mashable has said Nook HD and HD+ owners who download the update via Wi-Fi will get access to Google Play’s library of movies and music.

We always are taking customer feedback related with what they’d like to see with Nook. The desire to see an expanded app catalog fed into that for sure,” it quoted Barnes & Noble VP of Global E-book, Jim Hilt, as saying.

However, Hilt said Google Play will not replace the Nook’s curated list of apps, but its icon will be on the “Active Shelf” alongside Nook’s other content options.
