The Nook Tablet sports the same industrial design as the Nook Color, but , that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s still just as light, durable, and attractive as its predecessor (in fact, it’s a few hundred grams lighter than the Nook Color).
At launch event for the tablet in New York City today, I was able to get a bit of hands-on time with the Nook Tablet. I also chatted with the company’s CTO of digital products, Ravi Gopalakrishnan, who gave me a tour of its capabilities (see video below).
Meanwhile, the Nook Apps are only for the Nook Color, and now this Nook Tablet. That isn’t to say that it can’t grow, but right now it just doesn’t have the same selection and variety of the Amazon AppStore.
