Nook HD+ Review


The Nook HD+ is Barnes and Noble's first tablet to have a screen size other than 7-inches. The + adds and extra 2-inches when measured diagonally, and makes the device better suited for larger-form content such as magazines, PDFs, and comics.

The high resolution screen is very crisp and clear, and colors are bright and striking ; Good value for a large-screen tablet for the price in terms of hardware and specs, and the build quality is solid too ; User profiles allow you to setup multiple...

Locked into Barnes and Noble's ecosystem for purchasing content, which wouldn't be so bad if not for the fact B&N's content selection is much smaller than competitors like Amazon, Google, and Apple ; The selection of apps available in the Nook Store is...

The Nook HD+ is a really nice tablet in terms of hardware and specs. The screen is absolutely gorgeous. For the price you can't beat it. But like always with a B&N product, the locked down software is a big negative, and content selection is majorly...

Nook HD review: A faster, brighter and better e-reader/tablet


Barnes & Noble's new Nook HD and Nook HD+ Android-based tablets are worthy competitors to Amazon's Kindle Fire.

Smooth performance; streamlined software; excellent screen; fast Web browsing; multiple profiles on one device

No camera; limited video catalog

First, keep in mind that, although Barnes & Noble likes to call the Nook HD a "full HD tablet," it's like its main competitor, the Kindle HD, in that you have to deal with a tweaked version of Android, and you don't get access to the full Google Play...

The Nook HD is one of the best family eReaders because it allows you to set up different profiles, and it also offers an abundance of content

This device does not offer text-to-speech capabilities

This eBook reader is best suited for families that plan to share one device.

Nook HD review


The lightest, highest resolution 7-inch tablet, but is it any good?

Lightweight ; Fantastic screen ; Simple to use ; Multiple user profiles

Sluggish ; Limited interface ; Questionable design

Is the Nook HD the best 7-inch tablet on the market? In short, no.

Nook HD review


The Barnes & Noble Nook HD is the latest 7-inch tablet to hit the shops, but can it take on the Kindle Fire HD ?

Multiple user profiles ; Comfy to hold ; Bright, crisp screen

Slightly sluggish operation ; Build looks a little cheap ; Ring-fenced app selection

We were very impressed by the Nook HD's lightweight build and comfy design, particularly as it was much easier to hold in one hand than the Google Nexus 7. It's certainly a contender for the 7-inch tablet crown - we'll know more as soon as we get our...
