Barnes & Noble Launches Nook HD and Nook HD+

by Shane McGlaun

Barnes & Noble has announced a pair of new tablets called the Nook HD and the Nook HD+. The Nook HD has a seven-inch screen and the Nook HD+ has a nine-inch screen. The seven-inch unit has a resolution of 1440 x 900, and Barnes & Noble claims that is the highest resolution of any seven-inch tablet device on the market.

The seven-inch tablet is powered by  a 1.3 GHz dual core OMAP4470 processor and has 1 GB of RAM. The tablet is available in white or black colors with 8 GB or 16 GB of storage.

The nine-inch screen tablet has a resolution of 1920 x 1280 (at a density of 256ppi), meaning it supports full HD resolution for streaming video. It’s powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core OMAP4470 processor and has 1 GB of RAM. Both tablets can be expanded by up to 32GB using a microSD card as well, and require a Wi-Fi connection to download or stream content. They also both have an HDMI output for connecting to your TV.

The Nook HD will come in an 8GB model for $199 (USD), 16 GB for $229 or 32 GB for $269; while the Nook HD+ will go for $269 with 16GB and $299 with 32GB. The tablets will be available on November 1st in the US, and in late November in the UK. No word yet on launch dates for other regions.
