Nook HD & HD+

2010 was supposed to be the year of the tablet. Then 2011. But it looks like 2012 might just live up to the billing. The Nook HD & HD+ ($200-$300) are the latest slates to be announced this fall, offering 7- and 9-inch HD displays, 1.3- and 1.5-GHz dual-core processors, 1GB of RAM, and between 8GB and 32GB of onboard storage. Of course, they also offer full access to Barnes & Noble's catalog of books, magazines, apps, and videos, and as a bonus, they offer a new Nook Profiles feature that lets you easily share your tablet with others without fear of them accessing personal content.

  • Microsoft Surface Tablets

    Leave it to the boys in Redmond to make purchasing a tablet confusing. The new Microsoft Surface Tablets ($TBA) will come in two varieties: one with an ARM processor running Windows RT, and one with an Intel processor running Windows 8 Pro. The RT model sports a 10.6-inch HD display, microSD slot, USB 2.0, a Micro HD video port, and your choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage, while the Pro model features a 10.6-inch Full HD display, a microSDXC slot, USB 3.0, a Mini DisplayPort video port, and either 64GB or 128GB of storage. No matter which one you choose, you'll be able to attach the magnetic Touch Cover or Type Cover to add a keyboard to the otherwise touchscreen device. But don't go losing your shit just yet — no release date and no prices were given.

  • Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight

    eReaders built around ePaper displays are great — until the sun goes down and you find yourself propping lamps in strange positions in order to get a light on the things. Now, you could just get yourself a Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight ($140) instead. This new six-inch eReader sports a built-in light that gets diffused across the entire screen for an even reading experience, as well as the touchscreen interface, built-in Wi-Fi, and microSD features of the standard Nook Touch.
