It's shaping up to be quite the holiday season for tablet shoppers. First the iPad, then the Fire, and now the Nook Tablet ($250). Aimed squarely at consumers of books, magazines, video, and other media, the Nook Tablet sports a dual 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a seven-inch VividView touchscreen, 16GB of memory, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Pandora pre-loaded, Wi-Fi for downloading more Android apps, a rechargeable battery good for up to 11.5 hours of reading, and, of course, a funky open loop in the bottom corner for attaching a carabiner. Oh, that's not what it's for? Why is it there, then?
Still on board the "I hate Apple and won't buy an iPad" boat? Suit yourself, and prepare your bank account for purchase of these Sony S1 & S2 Tablets ($TBA). Running the latest version of Android 3.0, both tablets will offer Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity, DLNA functionality, PlayStationSuite support, and a 9.4-inch screen on the S1, which also offers universal remote control functionality, or two 5.5-inch screens on the S2.
