At present, market is flourished with 7-inch Tablets including Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble’s Nook,  Google’s Nexus 7 and more. In addition to these, Apple is also going to launch 7-inch mini iPad later this month. We have already discussed about the specifications and features of Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus. Barnes & Noble’s 9-inch Nook HD+ is also on the way to be launched, most probably in the next month, which is considered as a potent rival for Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.

Of course, all these three vendors (Google, Amazon and B&N ) are offering their Tablet at the very affordable price, but which one will attract users’ attention will be seen in the future soon. Yesterday, BrandsMart U.S.A. offered Barnes & Noble (B&N) Nook Tablet (8GB) for $98.88– additional shipping charge of $7.87 for off-store purchase–, but today, the website reports the product is “out of stock”. The Nook Tablet (8GB) has vibrant 7-inch touch screen, 8 GB built-in storage, built-in Wi-Fi  and MicroSD expansion slot along with full access of books and magazines. On the downside, the device does not possess Bluetooth and cameras.

Indiscriminately, both Amazon’s Kindle Fire and B&N’s Nook Tablet are budget-priced Tablets. On Tuesday this week, B&N unveiled two Nook Tablets—7-inch Nook HD for $199 and 9-inch Nook HD+ for $269–to compete with Amazon’s 7-inch and 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD Tablet.


Barnes & Noble’s Nook HD+ Vs Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD

The 9-inch Nook HD+ shows off a screen resolution of 1920 x 1280 pixels (256 ppi), while 8.9-inch Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD has 1920 x 1200 pixels (254 ppi) screen resolution. Screen resolution of the 9-inch Nook HD+ is considered nearly as sharp as the third generation Apple’s ‘Retina Display’ Tablet. In terms of screen resolution and display, Nook HD+ is clearly winning over Kindle Fire HD.

The NOOK HD+ has 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, while Kindle Fire HD has same processor speed and RAM. Both (Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD+) the Tablets support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n access and Bluetooth 4.0, but B&N offers free in-store Wi-Fi for Nook HD+ owners.

Moreover, Kindle Fire HD is also coming with 4G connectivity—however, user will have to pay an extra $200 to have 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD 4G LTE.



B&N is offering 16 GB model of Nook HD+ for $269 and 32 GB model for $299, while Amazon is offering Kindle Fire HD  (16 GB) for $299 and 32 GB model for $369. The price margin on 16 GB and 32 models on Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD+ Tablets are $70 and $30 respectively, means to purchase 32 GB model of Nook HD+ is more profitable compare to the same model purchase on  Kindle Fire.

Besides, Nook is offering external storage support via a micro-USB port (located on the bottom of the device), while Kindle Fire is offering combination of internal storage and the cloud.

Other Aspects:

Nook HD+ Tablet does not have any camera and Amazon is unilaterally dominating over B&N in terms of integrated services and digital contents. Presently, Amazon’s app store has more than 50,000 apps, while B&N’s app store has just 6,000 apps. However, Nook HD+ has better processing power, graphical capabilities and battery life compare to its previous version and it’s somehow better than Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD as well in the same aspects, but Kindle Fire HD will leverage on its digital contents and integrated services to compete with Nook HD+ Tablet.
