Barnes & Noble Nook HD
The Nook HD delivers the best-looking movies and books of any 7-inch tablet thanks to its sharp 1,440x900 resolution screen. We're just hoping its selection of apps, movies, and TV shows increases over the next few months.

The good: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD has a light, comfortable design with a sharp screen and a well-implemented user profiles feature. Books, videos, and magazines look great and the microSD slot takes some of the sting out of the lack of internal storage.
The bad: It’s missing some typical tablet features and 8GB is still a low starting point for storage. Fingerprints easily sully the screen and performance can be sluggish at times.
The bottom line: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD's sharp screen and comfortable body make it an ideal tablet choice, especially for reading books, magazines and watching movies. Google Play now only adds to the allure.Read CNET's Full Review Back to Holiday Gift Guide
