Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet
1 of 4
CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very good)
The good: The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet is a full-featured tablet with a vibrant 7-inch touch screen, built-in Wi-Fi, 16GB of built-in storage, and a microSD expansion slot. In addition to a full slate of books and magazines, it offers more than a thousand apps through its integrated (and growing) Nook Store and is optimized for Netflix and Hulu Plus video playback. The built-in Web browser works well and offers Flash support.
The bad: There's no access to the full Android Market; no Bluetooth, GPS, or camera; and no video rental (or purchase) option. Also, sideloaded content beyond 1GB needs to be housed on microSD.
The cost: $249.00 to $255.00
The bottom line: With more storage and a growing app store, the Nook Tablet is a worthy--albeit slightly more expensive--competitor to the Kindle Fire.
