Nook Tablet allows for third party app installs via web

Now that the Nook Tablet has started shipping out and arriving in the hands of anxious consumers, we’re starting to learn new things about the B&N tablet. One such “thing” is that the device allows for third part application installs via the web browser. It’s said that the process fails about as often as it succeeds but it’s still possible.

We learned of this via The Digital Reader who tried the process out and came away pleasantly surprised. Nate was able to install Amazon Appstore, Kindle, Aldiko, and Kobo on his Nook Tablet, however he ran into issues with other apps. If you own a Nook Tablet then you may want to check The Digital Reader and read through the instructions.

    This Nook isn’t a “Google Experience” device, right? That could explain some failing installs.
