The Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet looks to be the final Android device the company will ever release on its own. During a recent financial earnings call, B&N stated that it will not develop any more tablets in-house, and instead will partner with other companies to release the hardware. However, when the Nook HD bundled Google Play earlier on in the year, it got a second lease on life. Many customers that were attracted to the high discounts and good resolution ended up making the switch. Obviously, the inevitable iPad comparisons are being made and many customers have asked what are the core differences. In this review, we endeavor to find out.
We initially did a video comparison of these two devices the second they came out. In the months that followed, both gained a tremendous amount of enhancements and firmware updates. Many people have asked us to re-evaluate the iPad Mini and Nook HD. In the video below, you can check out the entire Google experience the Nook HD brings to the table and compare it directly against the iPad Mini.
