Barnes & Noble Nook HD+


Barnes & Noble has been enjoying some time in the spotlight recently. The decisions it has made have been good though, and we think have improved the chances of its devices being seen in a fairly crowded market. First, the company reduced the price of...

Stylish, well priced, fantastic screen, access to Google Play, good store and app/book/video selection, well designed UI, good battery life

Store sometimes more expensive than Amazon, quite heavy,

There is the feeling when you're using the Nook that it's really not all that fast, at least in terms of raw processing power. Sometimes when performing fairly simple tasks we'd find the graphical transitions would stutter and lag. Strangely, this...

Barnes & Noble Nook HD


If you're looking for a tablet, then you're spoilt for choice. This year has seen a great move towards smaller tablets, with the launch of the Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD and the iPad Mini. Joining this rather prestigious bunch is the Nook HD. The Nook HD...

Great high-resolution display, weight, microSD card allows expansion, content makes the most of the hardware, movie options, supports UltraViolet and Adobe DRM

App selection could be better, no music offering, locked-down hardware means it's tricky to add your own apps, case vibration when volume turned up, shop results could be returned bettter

The Nook HD is a powerful tablet that's been thoughtfully customised to offer a great user experience. Barnes & Noble has tweaked the user interface to make it simple and approachable. There's plenty of content on offer and the navigation options...

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ 9-inch tablet pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint


We have to admit to being a bit surprised when Barnes & Noble invited Pocket-lint to a recent briefing in London to see its new product range. As we explain

Nook GlowLight review


Is the Nook GlowLight worth a glowing recommendation?

Bright, crisp screen ; Light and portable ; Big library of titles

Touchscreen lag ; No microSD ; Questionable build quality

An ereader that competes with Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite on design and price, if not on quality. The decent online library will keep you stacked with titles while the improved screen and backlight make for comfortable reading marathons.

Nook HD+ review


Significantly lighter and cheaper than an iPad, but is that enough?

Lightweight ; Impressive 9-inch HD screen ; Google Play access

Poor custom UI ; Ugly design ; Sub-standard Nook Shop

With the Nook HD, US bookstore giant Barnes & Noble entered the wide-open 7-inch tablet market, but with the 9-inch Nook HD+ it faces a single and much more daunting foe.

Barnes & Noble Nook HD review


The Nook from US book retail giant Barnes &Noble has evolved into the Nook HD, with one of the very bestscreens for its size, and the power of B&N's retail mediaempire behind it.

Excellent screen, fast processor, good online media store,expandable memory

No Google Play, no camera

The Nook has tried to make a niche for itself by becoming the bestmagazine ereader there is. It may well have succeeded, but thatwon't be enough to get it a place at the top table with Android andApple tablets. There's no Google Play, or a camera, but...

Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet 10.1


Barnes & Noble's 10.1-inch Nook is a solid Android tablet for downloading apps from Google Play and reading comics.

In-store service and support from Barnes & Noble. Good size for comics. Google Play access. Plenty of storage.

Slow performance. Poor cameras.

Cheap tablets are not going to perform well. We need to keep emphasizing that: You get what you pay for. If you want a really smooth-performing 10-inch tablet, get our Editor's Choice, the entry-level $329 Apple iPad. (There aren't any great 10-inch...

Nook GlowLight e-ink e-reader review


Barnes & Noble's next-generation 6-inch e-ink e-reader, the Nook GlowLight, shares the same shape as the earlier Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight , but it sheds its carbon-colored shell for a warmer, off-white housing that has a rubberized gray trim...

Barnes & Noble's second-generation Nook GlowLight improves on an already good e-reader, with a lighter design than the Kindle Paperwhite, improved lighting scheme, sharper text, and other enhancements, including the elimination of page flashing. You...

Lacks the expansion slot and page-turn buttons found on previous models. While the device is responsive, Barnes & Noble would have ideally equipped it with a faster processor. White finish can show some grime from your hands. Nook content ecosystem is...

While it doesn't necessarily beat the Kindle Paperwhite, the $119 Nook GlowLight is an excellent e-reader that's strongly worth considering if you don't want to buy into the Amazon ecosystem.
