Forum Created for the Barnes & Noble Nook HD, HD+
Were you productive while away from your home on the Interwebs last night? Or did your ORD have you F5-ing the XDA forums in hopes of getting your next dose of that tasty root-enabled goodness? Whatever the case, we now have another forum for you to check when making your rounds across the site.
The Barnes & Noble Nook HD and HD+ are the successors to the wildly popular Nook Color and its somewhat less popular younger brother, the Nook Tablet.
The flagship HD+ builds on its predecessors with impressive specs including a 9″ IPS panel with a retina-pleasing 1920 x 1200 resolution, a dual-core 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, a full gig of RAM, and up to 16 gigs of storage. Its little brother offers much the same specs, but with a slower 1.3 GHz OMAP 4470 chip and a 7″ IPS panel with a 1440 x 900 resolution.
Those eager to get in on the discussion should head over to the newly created forum!
