I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for CNET.com.
And I'm here with a bit of news from Barnes & Noble.
No, it hasn't announced new products yet, but it has done something instinct-- it's added Google Play to its existing tablets, the Nook HD and the Nook HD+.
So, that opens up the device to 700,000 apps.
Previously, some people complained that the device just didn't have
enough apps on it before.
Yes, Barnes & Noble's existing apps store will continue to co-exist along with Google Play.
But everything about Google Play will be there, be able to download apps, there's music, as well as movies.
So, that'll compete right alongside with Barnes & Noble's offerings.
You also get the Gmail app as well as Google+.
And on top of it, Barnes & Noble has switched to the Chrome browser for the browser in this device.
So, no new hardware to report this time, but obviously, adding the Google Play store is a big deal, opens this device up-- actually to two devices.
And this will be available as a software update as soon as it's announced.
I'm David Carnoy, and that is a bit of news from Barnes & Noble adding the Google Play store.
Thanks for watching.
