Barnes & Noble has released details of its new Nook HD range of Android tablets, which are aimed squarely at Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD line and Google’s Nexus 7. The new tablets are on pre-order now and will start shipping in late October. These are aggressively priced, with the 8GB 7 inch Nook HD selling for $199 (just like the Kindle Fire HD). But of more interest is the 16GB 9 inch version which starts at just $269, compared to $299 for Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD 8.9″.
