NOOK Tablet

The NOOK Tablet is the most recent addition to Barnes and Noble s NOOK line of portable e-book reader devices. The NOOK Tablet debuted in late 2011 as a replacement for the NOOK color and is designed to compete with similar multifunctional devices like the Kindle Fire and Apple’s iPad.

The $249 tablet computer lacks the Kindle Fire s dedicated Appstore as well as the video and music content provided by Amazon, but it does offer multimedia content via built-in apps like Hulu Plus, Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora and TuneIn Radio Pro.
