Deal: £110 Nook HD is best value-for-money Android tablet on the market

Head over to Argos to grab the Barnes and Noble Nook HD if you want a quality Android-based tablet. The high street retailer is currently offering the device for £110. It originally carried a suggested retail price nearer to £200.

This 7in display comes with some serious compromises (like the lack of rear or front facing camera, the absence of a HDMI port and the fact that it uses a customized version of Android).

That said, the rest of is configuration leaves no doubt as to its potential as a media device. It runs on a dual-core TI OMAP4470 system-on-chip clocked at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 7in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, nearly 11 hours battery life, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, a microUSB port, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a distinct design.

Note that the 8GB version is even cheaper at £99 while the Smoke-coloured model is a tad more expensive. It looks likely that Kobo and Amazon will end up being the only two popular ebook reader brand remaining. Read our review of the Barnes & Noble Nook HD here.
