The Nook Tablet has the combined features of an eReader and a tablet. It lets you surf the web and email your buddies with its built-in Wi-Fi. However, it also has 16GB of internal storage so you can download and store apps, music and videos. If that is not enough for you, simply purchase an SD card and you can expand your memory up to 32GB. Additionally, with the Nook Tablet you have free Nook Cloud storage where you can keep your files.

The Nook Tablet offers a host of features that you are sure to enjoy. In addition to offering over 2.5 million books, you can also download apps and games to keep you entertained wherever you go. If you are interested in keeping up with the news, you can download and read several different newspapers. They also offer several different magazines for you to read. While it is true that with this tablet you will never be bored, you can also count on having great battery life. With 11.5 hours of reading time, you will be spending less time recharging your battery and more time enjoying your Nook Tablet.

This tablet offers a dual-core processor speed of 1 GHz, which is on par with the rest of the tablets in our review. It also comes with 16GB of internal storage. However, you can add up to a 32GB SD card if you find you are running out of storage space. In addition, Barnes & Noble offers free cloud storage to anyone who is using the Nook Tablet. Using the Nook Cloud storage will also keep your files safe and secure.

The Nook Tablet offers a 7-inch viewing display. The screen resolution is 1024 x 600 and has more than 16 million colors in VividView. This feature allows the device to be extra bright without causing a lot of glare, which will help your eyes to focus easily.

Weighing less than 1 pound, this tablet is light so it is simple to carry. While it is a bit smaller than many of the tablets in our review, it still allows you to surf the web, read books and watch videos without any problems. This tablet is 8.1 inches high, 5 inches wide and 0.48 inches thick. Considering these measurements, it is one of the smaller devices on our review. This will allow you to carry it more places without having to lug around a large bag or purse.

We found the Nook Tablet simple to use. If you have used a touchscreen phone, you will get the hang of it with no problem. Even if you have not used a touchscreen phone, the interface is simple to learn. It is also great for those who may have impaired vision since you can pinch or pull your fingers to easily zoom in and out on the screen. 


The Nook Tablet offers several great features such as 16GB of internal storage that can be increased by purchasing up to a 32GB SD card. It also will allow you to download videos, books, magazines and newspapers. Because it is so small and lightweight, you can take it almost anywhere without having to lug around a larger bag. This tablet is great for those who are searching for something ultra portable with the functionality of a tablet.
