Conclusion: Here’s the deal folks. If reading is more of your forte than anything else, there’s no question that the NOOK HD is the ideal tablet for you, especially when it has a healthy and robust ecosystem in that particular category.
Pros: Sharpest display on a 7-inch tablet is great for reading
Excerpt: The fight over tablet market share has officially graduated into a battle royal. After Amazon planted the flag on the mountain for major retailers, Barnes & Noble is now in hot pursuit with the newly announced Nook Tablet .
Conclusion: To be honest, I was not sold on the Nook HD+. I found the overall device to be bulky and cumbersome and not indicitive to Barnes and Noble’s history of tablets. Many people buying this device would have purchased the prior models, and this HD is an upgrade in every sense of the word.
Pros: New Store, ArticleView and Scrapbook, Movies and TV, Resolution, Stereo Speakers, Magazine Engine, Parental Controls
Cons: Comic Book Selection Is Lacking, Inability to Load in Your Own Apps, No Previews on Movies, Competitor Apps Not in B&N Store
Conclusion: The Nook Tablet is a solid second offering by Retail book giant Barnes and Noble. It gives you hardware wise a real bang for your buck with the dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage.
Conclusion: With the release of Nook tablet, B&N has an important competitor in today’s crowded market of cheap Android tablets. Its predecessor, Nook Color was the second most sold tablet after iPad and, although Amazon poured significantly more money in promoting their product, I like Nook Tablet so much more...
Pros: fast, excellent battery life, physical buttons and memory expansion slot, HD Netflix streaming, a first, thin and light, gorgeous screen
Cons: limited number of apps in the B&N Nook Market (can be fixed by installing Amazon App Store or Google Android Market), only 1GB from the 16GB available can be used for side loading apps and user content, the rest of it is dedicated to content purchased from B&N store. This seems that will change s...
Excerpt: Not that I'm an obsessive reader--that Twilight Zone with Burgess Meredith and the eyeglasses really freaked me out--but the drastic movement away from the tried-and-true form factor of books and into the modern realm of the eReader has been a fascinating revolution to watch.
Pros: Stunning LCD touchscreen, fast CPU, handy form factor, Always-welcome Adobe Flash Player support for online video!, A terrific value at $249, microSD card slot in addition to 16GB of internal storage
Cons: Only 1GB of the embedded memory is really at our disposal, No camera, Limited movie and music options, Several features require a credit card
Summary: The lightest, highest resolution 7-inch tablet, but is it any good?
Pros: Lightweight, Fantastic screen, Simple to use, Multiple user profiles, The Nook HD does have an excellent screen, which makes watching movies and consuming web pages an enjoyable experience. Battery life is something which is always a concern with today's mobile tech, but thankfully the Nook HD ma...
Cons: Sluggish, Limited interface, Questionable design, Sadly it's not all good news, and for all its early promise the Nook HD is left wanting in a few areas. First up is the sluggish interface, which is no where near as slick as the Kindle Fire HD or Nexus 7. Users who enjoy the highly customisable w...
