Description

The Nook HD is the “lightest 7-inch tablet on the market,” and B&N didn’t hesitate to point out why it’s better than the Kindle Fire and the Google Nexus 7. First, getting the weight to merely 11.1 ounces (315 grams) is definitely something you’d appreciate when you have to hold the tablet for longer. In comparison, the Nexus 7 is 12 ounces and the Fire HD is 13.9 ounces.
