Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet HD+ Review

Good E-Book Readers
9 January 2013
  • Conclusion: The Nook HD+ is heavy and cumbersome. It is not the most portable of units, when you compare it against the Nook Tablet or Nook HD. This is going to be used in the home or the classroom. You certainly aren’t going to be carrying this around in your day to day life. One of the main drawbacks is the inability to load in your own apps. You won’t be able to find anything that directly competes with Barnes and Noble’s store.
  • Pros: Updated Store Looks Amazing, Article View Technology Makes Image Heavy Content Easy to Read, High Resolution, Newspapers Have Text to Speech, Family Friendly, Large eTextbook Library, Movies and TV Shows
  • Cons: No Cameras, Heavy, Inability to Sideload Apps, Locked into Barnes and Noble’s Walled Garden, Sparse App Selection for Alternative Reading Apps

Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ Review

Phone Arena
19 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Staring deeply at the $270 price of the 16GB base model of the NOOK HD+ ($300 for the 32GB version), there’s no arguing that their intent is to keep Amazon itching with anticipation. Rightfully so, they’re able to do just that, as the NOOK HD+ has the more detailed display of the two – while also being lighter as well. However, it’s missing out on several key features to make it an instant buy over other highly-prized full tablet offerings on the market.
  • Pros: Super affordable price point, Very sharp looking display, great for reading
  • Cons: Sluggish overall performance, App selection is limited, No cameras

  • Conclusion: Barnes & Noble took a risk with the Nook HD+, and it deserves to be commended for it. As good as the screen is though, the Nook HD+ is let down by its limited software: you can get almost all the same content on other Android tablets, and at £229, it's dangerously close to the price of an iPad 2 or an iPad mini - both of which are packed with apps and boast better build quality. And haven't been attacked with a hole punch.
  • Pros: Barnes & Noble has gone for broke with the screens on its Nook slates, and like the HD, the HD+' display is absolutely stunning. The 1920x1080 full HD panel is pin sharp, and the best you'll find for the price - impressive given B&N's paperback book selling background. These are real media players - you can even plug the Nook HD+ into a TV to watch your videos back on a big screen. The Nook HD+ is a nice size too: at 9-inches, it sits comfortably between the smaller s...
  • Cons: While the solid construction of the Nook HD+ feels like it could take the battering, bruising treatment of a toddler, it's not all sunshine and roses on the design front. It's worth noting that there's a gigantic hole on one corner of it. Barnes & Noble would like this to be a design feature, but it's not. It's a hole. And it's not for a wrist strap or keyring, as this is a large nine inch tablet which you wouldn't want swinging around. It's just weird. And like the s...

Barnes and Noble Nook HD+ Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Like its little brother, the Nook HD+ provides a sharp screen, solid performance and the best book and magazine experience you can get on a mobile device. Moms and dads will like how easy it is to set up multiple profiles and the built-in parental controls. Considering that it's still light enough for many users to hold in one hand and costs just $70 more, many will prefer the added screen real estate on the HD+.
  • Pros: Sharp display, Best tablet reading experience, Useful parental controls, Long battery life, Affordable price
  • Cons: Limited Android implementation, Few apps, No camera

PC Magazine
7 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ is a good choice for book lovers, but its smaller 7-inch sibling is a better bet. We want a lot more from a 9-inch tablet.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. High-resolution screen. Quality build. Supports multiple users. Great children's books and magazines.
  • Cons: Very limited media store, media-format support, and app selection. Slow Wi-Fi.

  • Excerpt: When Barnes and Noble first unveiled the Nook HD and Nook HD+ back in September, I was intrigued by the unique screen size of the 9-inch Nook HD+. But ultimately I decided to get a 7-inch Nook HD because I’ve been reviewing a lot of 7-inch tablets lately like the Kindle Fire HD and Google […]Read more
