Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet Review
19 May 2012
Excerpt: The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is definitely not an e-reader, but it’s also not a proper tablet. Like the Kindle Fire, it’s in a bit of a class of its own. Still, this reading-focused tablet is likely the third best-selling tablet out there for good reason: It’s cheap. But is it worth the $200 to $250? Find out in our full review below.
Pros: Better performance than Kindle Fire, Bright, vivid screen, Nice interface built around e-book reading, Good battery life for a tablet, microSD card slot
Cons: Battery life can't match E-Ink e-readers, App selection is limited, Fewer multimedia features than Kindle Fire, No cameras or Bluetooth
Summary: With a fantastic eReading experience, the best selection of interactive children's books, and a newsstand loaded with magazines, the $199 Nook Tablet is a great color eReader. We prefer the display on this device to the Kindle Fire, but Amazon's device has a superior app selection and better offline media options.
Summary: With a fantastic eReading experience, the best selection of interactive children's books, and a newsstand chock-full of magazines, the $249 Nook Tablet is the ultimate color eReader. We prefer the display on this device to the Fire, and we experienced less lag in everyday use. But with a weak selection of apps, lackluster audio, and no offline video or audio options yet, the Nook Tablet falls behind the $199 Fire in those areas.
