Running on Android 2.3, the Nook Tablet is equipped with a 7 inch screen offering resolution of 600 x 1024. The device is powered by a dual-core TI OMAP 4 processor and has 1GB of RAM aboard. The 16GB of native storage can be pumped up to as much as 48GB using a microSD card. For those who want to see how this upstart tablet fares against the Amazon Kindle Fire, you can read how the two match up against each other. The Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet, at $249, is $50 more expensive than the Kindle Fire although a teardown of the former shows that it is very similar to the latter device.
