Nook Tablet Review
Barnes and Noble has released the Nook Tablet, now their third model of ebook readers and tablets along with the Nook Touch and Nook Color. But, as the name implies, it is more than just an ereader, it's a multi-media functional tablet, similar to the Nook Color with some upgrades. Now there is also Nook HD Tablets which have several improvements over the original Nook Tablet.
Nook Tablet vs Nook Color
The main differences between the Nook Tablet and Nook Color models is that the Tablet model has more memory - 16GB vs 8GB, more RAM - 1GB vs 512MB and a faster processor - 1GHz vs 800MHz which makes everything run a little faster and smoother - browsing, shopping, playing games, watching videos running apps, etc.. The new Nook tablet also has a longer battery life of 9-11.5 vs 7-8 hours, weighs less at 14.1 oz vs 15.8 oz which is noticeably lighter in the hand and for all these added benefits, it will cost you $50 more at $249 vs $199. So if you want a faster, responsive tablet for games, watching movies, using apps, then you will be worth it to pay the extra money to upgrade. But the ereading functions are pretty much identical in both models.
