Nook HD review

The lightest, highest resolution 7-inch tablet, but is it any good?

Our Verdict

The Nook HD is a sturdy, well-built tablet with an impressive screen and weight, but the cheap plastic bezel does make it painfully clear that this is a budget device, and when you put it side by side with the competition the HD struggles to look 'grown-up'.
