Barnes & Noble slashes Nook HD prices for father's day

This week only, you can get the Nook HD (8GB) 7-inch tablet for $129 shipped and the Nook HD+ (16GB) 8.9-inch tablet for $149 shipped.

Those are unprecedented deals, especially considering that these are new units, not refurbs. The Nook HD normally sells for $199; the Nook HD+, for $269.

I went to B&N and looked at both. I think I prefer the 7-inch tablet, because it's easy to hold in one hand. Both models can take up to 32GB cards for additional storage.

Bonus: These nooks now have access to the Google Play store.
