Nook HD+ Vs Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablet hardcore review

By Alan Ng - Dec 2, 2013

The tablet Cyber Monady deals are really going a bit crazy this year it seems. While we have seen plenty of lesser known tablet brands appear with massive discounts, we’ve also spotted that some of the popular devices are also going with small discounts.

One of these is the Nook HD+ 9-inch 32GB tablet, which you can now pick up over at Target for just $150 – a $20 discount on their usual $170 listing. That is a very cheap price you have to say, especially for a tablet that provides suitable performance and hardware specs.

The key areas include a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD card reader, USB support and also HDMI out support as well. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is considered to be the Nook HD+’s main rival, as it contains similar specs such as the same 1.5Ghz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Both tablets also run on a customized version of Android, although it has to be said that Nook HD+ will offer an OS that is more akin to that of traditional Android, whereas the Kindle Fire HD has been heavily customized with Amazon’s own touch – not that this is a bad thing of course.


With both devices going for low prices during the December sales, we have picked out an in-depth review with the Nook HD+ Vs Kindle Fire HD, lasting 30 minutes. If you have the time, you can watch the whole thing and really get an idea on which tablet looks the better choice for you.
