Barnes And Noble Nook HD: "Me Too, Me Too!"

Following hot on the heels of the generally well-received Amazon Kindle HD - which itself followed the acclaimed Google Nexus tablet - Barnes and Noble offers the Nook HD, yet another Android-powered tablet with which to enjoy all your "stuff". The Nook HD comes in a couple of screen sizes and is competitively priced; the 8GB 7-inch screen version is $199 and the 16GB 7-inch model is $229, while the 9-inch Nook HD+ comes in at $269 and $299 for the 16GB and 32GB versions respectively.

The main difference between the three different systems (Google Nexus, Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook) is that while the Google device sticks with a "stock" version of Android, the two others have customized versions - presumably to make it easier for you to enjoy your content (and to purchase more of it, of course). In fact one of the criticisms of the Kindle HD is that Amazon may be a little too aggressive with the "You like this? Then you need to buy this!" sort of prompting on the interface.
