Barnes & Noble (BKS) announces Google Play is available for Nook HD products. Though the move is a further capitulation by B&N from offering up a closed eco-system, it also increases the number of apps available to consumers to 750K from 10K to make the Nook more attractive. Barnes & Noble is also cozying up to Google on the browser front with Chrome set to replace the existing default browser.
