Nexus 7 dimensions:
Nook Tablet dimensions:
Really? the dimensions are pretty identical.
The Nexus 7 has one piece of glass across its entire front which extends over the screen and bezel, kind of like the ipad only it's not gorilla glass. Dropping it is a heart-stopping affair. The Nook has a very solid, plastic bezel surrounding it's screen along with a small hole in the bottom left corner that can be used to attached a lanyard. It is from all reports a solid device.
