Review: Barnes & Noble Nook HD

Devices from bookseller Barnes & Noble mainly focus on e-readers, where their content and ecosystem were always considered as a major drawback of these devices.

But now things are changing, their new Nook HD claims to be the highest resolution display device than any other 7 inch tablet in the market.

This time they have come up with better hardware, millions of books, magazines, newspapers, and apps.

The device that features a 7 inch display comes with 1440 x 900 HD resolution, 11mm thickness and 11oz weight. The screen is bright, vibrant, and crisp and the viewing angles are excellent.

On board, it sports a 1.3 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4 processor, 1GB of RAM, and comes with 8 or 16GB of storage options. It lacks cameras and micro-SD slots for memory expansion.

The Nook HD tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The key advantage of the device is that you can create multiple user accounts. The tablet device is available for $199 and $229.


The Nook HD has a vibrant and crisp screen, and it performs well. The device is extremely user friendly too. It is a perfect device for reading but in the software and ecosystem sides it still needs some improvements.
