One of the best features of our little website is the ability to quickly mix and match products to your heart's content. Here's a sample showing the newly announced Nook Tablet, the already available Nook Color, and Amazon's upcoming Kindle Fire, compared against one another and set against the very popular iPad 2 for good measure.

Both the Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire are Android tablets with 7-inch IPS LCDs pushing 1,024 x 600 pixel resolutions and 1GHz dual-core processors. The Nook Tablet is just a tad chunkier (yet weighs less) but the big difference is the price: The Nook Tablet is $50 more than the Kindle Fire.

Where Nook Tablet comes out ahead is with longer battery life, according to B&N. And although both show a 7-inch IPS panel in the spec sheet, B&N claims to have the edge thanks to its "fully laminated" display offering the lowest reflection and glare with unprecedented viewing angles. But is the Nook Tablet worth the extra $50? For that you'll have to wait for our reviews.
