Nook Tablet


Back in April, the Nook Color underwent a magical change of sorts: a software update that transformed the device from a color screen e-reader into an honest to goodness Android tablet. It was the company's first swipe at the space -- a backdoor...

Excellent video quality ; Expandable memory ; Fast performance for a budget tablet

Upgrades from the Color are relatively minor ; Limited built-in storage for side-loaded content ; 7-inch screen is a bit small for magazines and comics

Barnes & Noble's budget tablet manages to give the Kindle Fire a run for its money, even though it costs $50 more.

Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet (8GB) review


Editors' note (September 27, 2012): Barnes & Noble has cut the price of the Nook Tablet line: the 8GB Nook Tablet is now $179, the 16GB is $199. Prospective buyers should note that Barnes & Noble is planning to launch two new Nook Tablets in early...

The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet (8GB) is an affordably priced full-featured tablet with a vibrant 7-inch touch screen, built-in Wi-Fi, 8GB of built-in storage, and a microSD expansion slot. In addition to a full slate of books and magazines, it offers...

There's no access to the full Android Market; no Bluetooth, GPS, or camera; and no video rental (or purchase) option. The 8GB of internal memory may be limiting to some people, though unlike with the Kindle Fire, you do have a memory expansion option.

The $199 Nook Tablet (8GB) matches up well to the Kindle Fire in specs and price--and has the added advantage of offering an expansion slot for additional memory.

Nook Tablet review


Exactly one year ago, Barnes & Noble made an interesting move, one no other company in the tech industry had yet been bold enough to make: it released the Nook Color for just $249.99. The 7-inch Color was positioned as an...

Design is still striking ; Lighter than the Nook Color ; Bright IPS screen with great viewing angles ; Faster performance

Weak music / video content ecosystem ; No tabbed browsing ; Cannot easily sideload apps ; Can only be charged with its “proprietary” MicroUSB cable

The Kindle Fire is $50 cheaper and provides a better ecosystem of multimedia content and applications

Press the Home button, and you'll get seven main options: Home, Library, Shop, Search, Apps, Web and Settings. Your Library contains, on separate panes, Books, Magazines, Newspapers, Apps, Kids, and My Stuff, a catch-all for any of your own music,...

Top-notch e-reading experience. Interactive childrens' books and magazines. Streaming video apps

No way to download music or video. Few apps

The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is the best small tablet for reading books and magazines, but falls short with multimedia.

In depth: Using the Kindle Fire vs. the Kobo Vox vs. the Nook Tablet


After testing the 3 top color e-readers, Preston Gralla explains which he likes best -- and why.

If you're looking for the e-reader with the best hardware and performance, the most expandability, the best screen and e-reading experience, you'll want the Nook Tablet. At $249, it costs $50 more than the Kindle Fire or Vox, so you'll pay a small...

Review: Nook Tablet


In the book of Tablets, it was written that Apple begat the iPad, the Amazon begat the Kindle and finally Barnes & Noble begat the Nook. And it was good. This article reviews the Nook's newest descendant, the Nook Tablet.

The Nook Tablet is the realization of the vision those techies had for the original Color. It?s a real tablet, so much so that B&N even put it in the name. With a new dual-core processor, 16 GB of memory, improved app store, and a few more multimedia...
