Nook Color

Last year's original Nook was a little odd, with a color touch screen and e-Ink display. It was like the iPad and Kindle had an illegitimate child. Now Barnes & Noble is back with the Nook Color ($250). Still based on Android and offering access to a store library of over two million digital titles, the new Nook features a 7-inch VividView touch screen, 8GB of internal storage, microSD storage expansion, Wi-Fi, a full browser, Pandora, and other applications through the new NOOKdeveloper program — which makes it a whole lot more Apple than Amazon.

  • BlackBerry PlayBook

    We won't know until next year whether it's a legitimate contender to the iPad's tablet throne, but we know this much: they definitely got the name right. The BlackBerry PlayBook ($TBA) is a new 7-inch touchscreen tablet aimed more at the business crowd, but packing plenty of widely-appreciated features like dual HD cameras, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI output, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 1080p video playback, 1024x600 resolution, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support, and Blackberry's new — and yet unproven — Tablet OS.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab

    The first wave of tablets following in the iPad's footsteps are (almost) here. Powered by the Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ($TBA) sports a 7-inch TFT-LCD display (1024 x 600), front (1.3 MP) and rear (3 MP) cameras, full HD video playback (DivX, XviD, MPEG4, H.263, H.264), and comes in 16GB and 32GB models. It's also got built-in 3G HSPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. It will be launching in Europe later this month and in the U.S. in the "coming months."
