Torn- Do I keep it or return it?

I received a Nook HD tablet for Christmas. At first I was thrilled. But upon really looking a their store, I am annoyed by the lack of apps and content for the tablet. Movies that have been out for a long time and are readily available through itunes or amazon are not in their store and my digital copies of several movies that are a format that the book can read won't play on the tablet.

I have about 3 days left for easy return of the tablet. I am debating on whether or not to return it and purchase a Google Nexus or iPad mini or just suck it up and keep it.

The main purpose of the tablet will be for reading scientific journals for work (which work really well on the Nook right now if I sideload them) and reading novels for fun but I also need it to have a few apps that I can use for work such as a notetaker (if I could write with a stylus it would be helpful, typing on tablets is tough) and also I would like to be able to play movies and games on it so that when we travel, my 8 year old has something to do.

I thought Nook would provide all of that but I am not sure. Any thoughts?
