Barnes and Nobles NOOK HD+ gets the FCC teardown treatment
Barnes and Noble unveiled its NOOK HD+ tablet last month with an expected release date of November 1st, 2012. Today, the device made an appearance on the FCC right on time for its November launch and got torn down in the process.
The NOOK HD+ sports an impressive 9 inch, 1920 x 1280 display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of storage and a battery that will provide up to 10 hours of juice. The device runs Android 4.0 ICS, but like Amazon’s Kindle Fire the OS is skinned nearly beyond recognition.
FCC filings include internal and external photos of the device, however internal photos don’t show much. However, we do see the NOOK HD+ cracked open, above, and logos on the device’s screen suggest that it’s made by Samsung. Unfortunately, we can’t see much else under the NOOK HD+’s hood.
Check out the FCC photos of the NOOK HD+ below for yourself.
