The Nook HD+ is a slightly larger version of Barnes & Noble's 7-inch Nook HD tablet. It boasts a 1080p HD display with 256 pixels per inch, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and weighs in at 18 ounces. Barnes & Noble says you'll enjoy 10 hours worth of battery life while reading and nine hours for watching videos. The Nook HD+ comes in 16GB ($269) and 32GB ($299) versions and includes an SD card slot of adding extra storage.
The Nook HD+ runs the same skinned version of Android as the Nook HD. It permits up to six profiles so every member of the family can get a personalized experience. It taps into Barnes & Nobles content library of magazines, books, movies and music.
Reviews of the Nook HD+ were mostly on the positive side of the ledger. Thanks to its low price, it's a good value compared with other 9-inch tablets and delivers a great book/catalog reading experience but it did lose points for its meager selection of third party apps and movie content.
