Do you read (that’s a rhetorical question)? Would you rather hug a tree than cut it down to make paper for books? Do you think bookshelves are the devil? Then you probably love e-readers. And unless you hate mega-huge book and stationary peddling corporations, you’ll probably love that Barnes & Noble has decided to bless the world with the latest iteration of it’s Nook e-reader, the Nook Tablet.
The Nook Tablet offers up a handful of improvements over its suspiciously similar looking predecessor, the Nook Color. For one thing the screen is nicer; it’s a 7 inch IPS display with full lamination. You get access to over 250 magazines and periodicals as well as comics from the usual suspects like Marvel and DC, and when you’re bored with all that you can watch videos in HD (1080p). You know what that means. You can totally read Jurassic Park, then watch Jurassic Park and complain about how different it is from the book! At least…that’s what I’d do…By the by, all those books and movies can be stored on the included 16GB of storage which can be expanded naturally via microSD cards.
The Nook Tablet is available now for $249 at Barnes & Nobles online store, among other places.
