Barnes and Noble launched its Nook Color, a winner last year [[yes??]], and at the time, we recognized the device’s potential as a tablet. Fast forward a year later, and with a lighter design, faster processor, and improved software, the Nook Tablet is among the very best of the inexpensive tablets available today. Your app selection is fed via the Barnes & Noble Nook store, but the real benefit to Nook Tablet over other competitors is its attention to the reading experience, which stands out for the display’s minimized glare and sharp text. We wish it had a higher-resolution display, but that might have been tough to deliver at Nook Tablet’s competitive price.
