Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ video review - 9in tablet with a stunning display

 

The Nook HD+ is a 9in tablet with a stunning full HD screen. It's thin and fairly light at just over 500g and, like Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets, it runs a heavily customised version of Google Android.

Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch GlowLight video review

 

At first we found the Nook quite chunky compared to the streamlined Kindle. However, after a couple of days we actually grew to like this feature and found it more comfortable to hold. The back-light is very useful in lowlight conditions, the touch...

Barnes & Noble Nook review

 

The Barnes & Noble Nook e-book reader evokes images of curling up in a corner with a good book near a cozy fire, perhaps with a mug of hot cocoa close at hand.

If the promised software update dramatically improves performance, the Barnes & Noble Nook could emerge as a worthy competitor to the Kindle 2. But it's current sluggish performance, along with the caveats about the LCD's interaction with the E-Ink...

eBook Reader or Tablet? : Barnes & Noble Nook HD+

 

Tablets have been able to offer users the ability to act as an eBook Reader for quite a while now. You just need to download the appropriate free app and your tablet can transform itself into a Kindle, Kobo or Nook in the blink of an eye. Now, with the...

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+

 

With its full HD nine inch screen Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ is a close rival to Amazon's 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet. But Amazon's larger Android-powered slate isn't coming to the UK, and the Nook HD+ is on sale right now, giving it a bit of breathing...

Barnes & Noble took a risk with the Nook HD+, and it deserves to be commended for it. As good as the screen is though, the Nook HD+ is let down by its limited software: you can get almost all the same content on other Android tablets, and at £229, it's...

Barnes & Noble Nook (Second Edition) review

 

As soon as I removed the new Barnes & Noble Nook from its box, I could tell that this petite e-reader was going to be a worthy challenger to the third generation Amazon Kindle. Impressively, when I tested the Nook and its new touchscreen, I found that...

I can't say that the Nook is the absolute best e-reader available today, but it comes close. Nook gets marked down for its terrible button design and inconsistent contrast and yet it wins favour for its interface and touch navigation. Those factors,...

Barnes & Noble Nook Color review

 

In the early, heady days of e-readers, the term "e-reader" was synonymous with an electronic paper-based device. The Barnes & Noble Nook Color explodes that narrow definition: The first LCD-based e-reader optimised around reading, the Nook Color...

By launching with 100-plus strong collections for its periodicals and children's books, NookColor makes a strong case for the color e-reader, and it does so in a far more compelling way than any other device has so far. Still, for all of its screen...

Barnes & Noble Nook review

 

The Amazon Kindle must have ruffled some corporate Barnes & Noble feathers. "I know," some B&N exec must have said. "Let's pull an Apple move on Amazon's sorry asses!" The result: a nearly buttonless e-book reader that has a colour LCD touchscreen...

Attractive, well-designed hardware. Colour LCD makes menus and covers look pretty. Ability to switch fonts is a welcome change. Book-lending works with friends and with libraries. Easy reading experience. Expandable via microSD slot. User-replaceable...

E Ink screen is noticeably more sluggish than the Kindle's. Occasionally poky interface on the touchscreen. Annoying interface glitches keep tripping up the browsing experience. Expensive for those accustomed to buying used paperbacks or visiting the...

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight review

 

The new Nook GlowLight has a better screen and brighter light, but that light is still uneven, its lack of page turn buttons make it difficult to use for lefties, and the overall package can't match the Kindle Paperwhite.

Screen is more pixel dense with deeper contrast ; GlowLight is brighter ; Speedy, responsive performance

No physical page turn buttons ; No improvements to the software or extras ; No MicroSD card slot ; Little space for non-B&N ebooks and files ; GlowLight still uneven

Ever since the first Nook debuted in 2009 each generation has improved on the last. Even when Barnes & Noble radically changed the design, it was done for the better. And each innovation from touch to built-in lights have made new Nooks highly...

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ review: a high-def 9-inch tablet at an entry-level price

 

More Info Barnes & Noble announces Nook HD+ 9-inch tablet, we go hands-on Nook HD review: a high-def tablet with the heart of a reader

Brilliant high-res display ; Tempting price ; Device is comfortable to hold ; Good reading experience

Uninspired UI ; Limited selection of apps, multimedia content

With the Nook HD+, Barnes & Noble is offering a nice piece of hardware at a good price. Too bad it's somewhat limited on the software side.
