The Nook HD is a 7-inch media tablet offering a resolution at 1440 by 900, with a 243 pixels per inch and HD video playback of up to 720p. Nook HD features an IPS display coupled with optical bonding technology with no air gap to deliver low-glare and a wide viewing angle for sharing.

By developing a breakthrough design that integrates the display into the device itself, Barnes & Noble eliminated many components to keep NOOK HD light, yet durable, at 11.1 ounces (315g) and five inches wide. Nook HD is armed with a dual-core 1.3GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.

The 7-inch Nook HD is now available for pre-order in two colors. Starting at US$199 for an 8GB model and US$229 for a 16GB version - both featuring expandable microSD memory storage.
