Close. According to B&N's own website it actually has 1920x1280 resolution, giving it 256ppi.

Nexus 7 still undefeated!

Also, I wish phonearena would specify that the n7 has expandable storage via USB otg. I have a 64+8gb n7.

Well, it's defeated depending on how you look at it. For those who want a stock Android experience with the latest and best specs, then yeah the Nexus 7 wins. However, if you are just looking for an everyday tablet that you mostly would read books and magazines on while also playing a few games and apps, then the Nook HD would be up your alley.

Also, while it may be true that you can technically get expandable storage that way, everyday consumers are not going to really want to do that. I mean I don't even think I would really care to have a USB dangling around while using my Nexus 7 (but that's just personal taste). The everyday consumers would more-so just want to be able to buy an SD card and put it in than have to deal with all of those cords and USB drives.

There are a couple of mistakes in this chart. First, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has a screen resolution of 1024 x 600 resolution screen not 1280 x 800. Only the Samung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a 1280 x 800 resolution screen. Second, the new Nook HD+ has a screen resolution of 1920 x 1280 (yes 1280) not 1920 x 1080.

Your comparison table not much use as its incomplete, requiring the reader to visit another arena site to find missing information like :
Is WiFi agbn & dual-band, WiFi-Direct ?
Bluetooth 2, 3, or 4 ? - not even mentioned here
HDMI Out ?
USB Host, mhl, otg ?

Under memory, rather than just 'expandable', better to have a line uSDslot: 32 or 64GB
