NOOK Tablet: Out of the Box

Book description

When you open the box for your brand-new NOOK Tablet, you'll find Barnes & Noble's latest 7-inch media device to hit the market, a USB cable, power adapter, and a "Quick Start Guide" that tells you how to turn it on. But to really take advantage of all the content and features the device has to offer, you'll need a little more. NOOK Tablet: Out of the Box gets you up and running beyond the first "Slide to unlock" screen to unlock all of your media from the cloud in the palm of your hand.

The new NOOK Tablet gives you immediate access to online music, movies, and the best of HD entertainment, wherever you are, as long as you know where to find it and how to consume it. With NOOK Tablet: Out of the Box, you'll jump right in to reading full-color magazines, newspapers, comics, interactive NOOK Kids books, beautiful PagePerfect titles, and your entire personal B&N library in the NOOK Reading App. Then, go beyond your own media to experience integrated email, games, Android apps, and lightning-fast web browsing.

This intuitive, easy-to-follow ebook opens the world of possibilities made possible by the NOOK Tablet, right out of the box.
