Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet


$249.00 Released November, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:May be rooted and running Android Ice Cream Sandwich soon. Nice form factor. Easy to grip in your hand. Longer battery life than Kindle Fire. Over 9 hours of video playback vs. 7 hours on the Kindle Fire.

The Cons:7" form factor is in the no-man's land for size when it comes to typing. Too large for thumbs, too small for fingers. Lame built-in email app.

The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is the newest e-reader from their Nook series. Its design is very similar to its predecessor, the Nook Color, and the two readers share a number of features. Like the Nook Color, the Tablet has a 7 inch VividView IPS touchscreen displaying 16 million ultra-bright colors, providing minimal glare and maximum clarity.

With over 2.5 million book titles, and the largest digital collection of magazines and newspapers in addition to thousands of apps, these readers are usable for a variety of entertainment. However, with an extended battery life of up to 11.5 hours of reading or up to 9 hours of video, the Nook Tablet provides an additional three hours over the battery life of the Nook Color. Also, with 16 GB storing up to 10,000 books, the Nook Tablet has twice the built-in memory of the Nook Color, though both can be expanded with a microSD memory card with up to 32 additional Gigabytes.
