It certainly took Barnes & Noble a while to bring the latest Nook HD and HD+ tablets to the UK, but British folks with a passion for technology can now finally get the two tabs. As expected, both the 7 and 9-incher will be available at slightly steeper prices than in the US, though you can’t say you’re not getting what you pay for.
The Nook HD is £159 with 8 GB of on-board storage and £189 in the 16 GB flavor. You can get the tab in either “smoke” or “snow” and the spec sheet includes a 7-inch 1440 x 900 pix res display, a dual-core 1.3 GHz TI OMAP CPU, microSD support, Wi-Fi connectivity and a heavily customized version of Android 4.0.
As for the 9-inch HD+, that’s available for £229 with 16 GB of storage and £269 with 32 GB, featuring a better 1920 x 1280 pix res panel and a snappier 1.5 GHz TI OMAP processor. Both the Nook HD and HD+ are up for grabs from B&N, but also from other major UK retailers like John Lewis, Argos or Dixons.
