Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet Review
If you’re looking for an entry-level tablet with a little more under the hood, the Nook Tablet is a fair pickup.
The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet 's screen is a 4.5625 x 6.0625 inch IPS (in-plane switching) display with a resolution of 600 x 1024. Though it's respectably bright compared to many televisions, it falls flat when compared with other tablets. In addition, the poor color gamut brings the score on this one down quite a bit. Acting as the main interface with the tablet, it employs the use of a capacitive touchscreen that is quite sensitive and accurate.
Indoor & Outdoor Use
Due to the high reflectivity and comparatively poor peak brightness, the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet doesn't seem to be able to handle direct sunlight well at all. Even in light levels like you'd see on an overcast day, the backlight of the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet just can't overpower the ambient light, and it remains difficult to read at best. This is not a tablet that should be used outdoors.
