Differences between nook color and nook tablet?

They could have just called it the Nook Color 2!

Changes in Device Body? Not much. They are the same design and look.
  • Nook Tablet is a metallic silver instead of a dark gray and has a more textured back.
  • Nook Tablet weight almost 1.5 ounces less than the Nook Color
Changes in the Internals? That's the big difference.
  • Nook Tablet has 1GHz dual-core processor /1 GB RAM versus 800MHz /512 MB RAM single core in nook Color.
  • 16GB RAM storage on Tablet versus 8GB RAM on Nook Color. At this point only 1GB of the RAM is available for you to use on non-B&N content. Most people could just add space with an SD card where they control what goes on it ($20 for 16GB SD card).
Battery, Screen, Other?
  • Tablet battery has 11.5 hours of "read time" versus 8 hours on the nook Color
  • Same screen size, resolution, and technology - no changes.
  • Tablet has a microphone which can be used to provide your own narrations to kids books.
Software Differences? Not as much with latest nook Color update
  • Tablet supports better resolutions on video and has Hulu app pre-installed. Netflix works on either.
  • New "Read and Record" your own book narration only on Tablet
So which should you pick? I think if $50 isn't a big deal I'd get the latest because it's going to be more future proof on B&N nook updates. I don't think you can go wrong on the nook Color if your primary use is for reading eBooks and light email/web use. If you want more multimedia features you should start with the nook Tablet.

I know that the NC can be used as a media tablet ~ since I use mine that way a lot ~ but I think the name is right. Using the NC as a media tablet is a compromise because of the RAM and processor horsepower limitations. The NC is an LCD ereader adopted as a budget media tablet ~ the nook Tablet was designed to be a media tablet.

Take the flash streaming. Netflix can only handle 480p on the NC ~ which is upscaled to the 600 line display. It can handle 720p on the NT ~ which means as sharp a picture as a 600 line display can physically show.

So the NC is designed for what it was originally intended to be ~ the NT for what many people have been using a NC for.
