With the Nook HD+, Barnes & Noble both takes on the iPad and gives the recently unveiled Kindle Fire HD tablets a serious competitor. The big-size Nook tablet is priced at $269 for the 16GB model and $299 for 32GB. It's also 2.8 ounces lighter than the Kindle Fire HD, but it doesn't have any cameras.
