Apparently completely disabled. I can not only NOT load the Appstore (and my apps there, including some unlock keys), I also can't load an app that is direct from a company (so, no controller for my A/V receiver or audio jukebox, for example).

It does have some pluses (and is nice to read books "in store" when at B&N).
Root, enable sideloading, disable root again. I think that will let you keep all the benefits of stock plus sideloading without needing to deal with root access. Or you can just root and keep it rooted. I think so long as you have stock still you can keep the in-store advantages.

I thought I wouldn't like that, but I actually don't mind. It's kind of an advantage actually, I can always find the charger in the nest of cords.

Went ahead and bought the HD+. Going to root the sucker and play with it. I wanted a larger screen tablet to read comics on and watch videos.

I got an HD+ during the earlier sale (darn it!) and have left it stock so far and find I'm enjoying it. It's a nice little tablet. May try to root it later.

I also bit during the last sale (when they were taking the coupon off the sale price, before the weekend was over, so at a slightly better deal than this sale, but not by much).

My Nook HD+ arrived today and even though the updated stock ROM is good since the Google Play store is available but I went ahead and installed CynogenMod and now the HD+ is a great Android tablet for the money.

So, $10 off and you probably get a refurb? Does it include a full warranty?

Not sure why you'd need two chargers, but I guess that's worth an extra $10, maybe.

Here's the link to the QVC special: http://www.qvc.com/webapp/wcs/stores...atalogId=10151. The product headline states "Barnes & Noble NOOK HD 9" 32GB Tablet w/ 2 Chargers & Digital Content," but it's actually the NOOK HD+. The offer includes the additional charging kit (USB cable and power adapter) as well as $143 of digital content. I assume the tablet is new, as I see no mention of it being refurbished. There is a one-year warranty.

Both the charger and the cable are proprietary, so loss or damage of either removes the ability to recharge.

Not quite true, as long as you have the cable you can charge using a PC or a standard charger. It will take about 4x longer to charge though.

Good to know. Can't say I'm surprised that B&N fibs on the matter.

Does the .25x rate apply to other high current chargers as well because of handshaking issues?

There is a hack for Nokia N900 phones to allow fast charging from non-Nokia chargers. Is there something similar for Nook HD?

I believe you can only get fast charging with the original nook chargers and nook cables.

There's a thread at XDA developers where users are reporting that the Nexus 7 and HP touch charging blocks (you obviously must use the Nook cable) work. Apparently the data+ pins in the charging block must be shorted in order for the HD+ to be charged.

So, it's a hardware issue.

I need to add that the HD+ can charge with other charging blocks but it will take much longer.

Cable yes, but charger no. I use the samsung charger on about everything (as it is extremely picky and won't charge from the one for the nook, kindle fire or ipad, but the others are happy with nearly anything).
