Nook HD and Nook HD+ up for grabs


Barnes & Noble has announced that its Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets are now available in the UK, at Nook.co.uk site and some other retailers/e-tailers. The new Nook HD and Nook HD+ are ready to crash Amazon's, Google's and, of course, Apple's tablet parade in the UK.

As we wrote back when it was announced in the States, the Nook HD features a 7-inch 1440x900 HD LCD touchscreen that translates to 243ppi and uses a Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 dual-core chip clocked at 1.3GHz. Starting with a £159 price tag for the 8GB model, the Nook HD is competitively priced, especially due to the fact that it has a microSD card slot, a critical feature for some consumers.

The 9-inch 1920x1080 (256ppi) Nook HD+ on the other hand does not have many competitors and it is certainly quite unique. Clocked at 1.5GHz and paired up with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, it can certainly hold its ground and even cope with Full HD video content. The Nook HD+ starts at £229 in the UK.

Both tablets will, of course, have access to the Barnes & Noble service including Nook Apps, Books, Channels and Newsstand. In case you want to share them, B&N also threw in Nook Profiles that give you an ability to log in with different profiles.

In case 8GB is not enough internal storage for you, the 7-inch Nook HD is also available in 16GB flavor for £189. The same thing goes for the Nook HD+, so if 16GB is not enough, the 32GB version is available for £269. You can find them both over at uk.Nook.com
