Deal: £79 Nook HD tablet

You can get the Barnes and Noble Nook HD tablet from Asda for as little as £79 with the ability to collect it instore for free. B&N has already committed to a swift exit from the tablet market which has turned into an extremely competitive one. Nonetheless, the Nook HD remains a very attractive proposal especially with the latest price cut.

It doesn't have a front or rear camera (so Skype is out of question) but other than that, the hardware is up to scratch. There's a 7in display with a 1,440 x 900 display (a pixel density of 243ppi), a dual-core system-on-chip, the TI OMAP4430, clocked at 1.3GHz, 8GB of RAM, up to nine hours battery life, Wi-Fi, a microSD card slot and a customized version of Android.

The Nook environment provides with a closed and controlled ecosystem with Scrapbook, Video, kids' learning apps and more than 2.5 million eBooks. You will also be able to download apps thanks to Google Play which is now available on Barnes and Noble. You can read our review of the Barnes & Noble Nook HD tablet here.
