Barnes & Noble Nook HD
If you're more of a Barnes & Noble person than an Amazon customer, then maybe the Nook HD is the tablet for you?
Not only is the Nook HD a very capable platform for books and magazines, it is also ideal for video consumption, optimized for both Netflix and Hulu Plus.
Another compelling feature of the Nook HD is that you can add more storage by adding a micro-SD card to the device. Neither the Amazon Kindle Fire HD nor the Google Nexus 7 offers this feature.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the Nook HD is that it doesn't offer access to Google Play, which means that the range of apps for it might not be as broad as that of a traditional Android tablet.
Price: Starting at $199 for 8GB.
