The 9-inch (that's nine on the nose) display is 1,920 x 1,280 at 256 ppi. The high resolution is aimed at offering up the proper showcase from Nook Video's high-def offerings. Inside, you'll find a dual-core, 1.5GHz OMAP4470 processor. The device seemed zippy enough in our time with it, though the company promises more advances as we push up to release. There's also a 6,000mAh battery that should give you either 10 hours of reading or nine hours of video. Storage-wise, you get either 16 or 32GB. All of that runs you $269 or $299, respectively -- a deal you can jump on right now with a pre-order. The Nook HD+ starts shipping in late October and will hit Barnes & Noble stores in early November.
