Nook Tablet

It's shaping up to be quite the holiday season for tablet shoppers. First the iPad, then the Fire, and now the Nook Tablet ($250). Aimed squarely at consumers of books, magazines, video, and other media, the Nook Tablet sports a dual 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a seven-inch VividView touchscreen, 16GB of memory, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Pandora pre-loaded, Wi-Fi for downloading more Android apps, a rechargeable battery good for up to 11.5 hours of reading, and, of course, a funky open loop in the bottom corner for attaching a carabiner. Oh, that's not what it's for? Why is it there, then?

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

    Does this list apply to you? A.) You don't want an iPad. B.) You want a tablet. C.) Ten inches is too big. D.) Seven inches is too small. If so, you might soon be in the market for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 ($470-$570).

  • Apple iPad 2

    Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance today to introduce us to the iPad 2 ($500-$829). About 33% thinner than the current iPad (which makes it thinner than the iPhone 4), the all-new iPad features Apple's new dual-core A5 processor for faster everything, as well as a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video. It's also got a built-in gyroscope, HDMI video output at 1080p HD ($39 cable required), 10 hours of battery life, and the same 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. Choose from black or white in 16GB ($500), 32GB ($600), 64GB ($700) sizes. If you want built-in 3G, you'll have to pay a little more — 16GB ($629), 32GB ($729), 64GB ($829). Also announced were iMovie ($5) and GarageBand ($5) for iPad, and a new magnetic Smart Cover ($39-$69).
