Here’s Part Two of a 2-part tour around the new Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet and its custom operating system. To watch Part One, just click right here. Easy, huh?

Nook Tablet is essentially the successor to Nook Color, and runs a heavily modified version of Android OS 2.3 “Gingerbread.” Nook Tablet steps up its game with a dual-core TI OMAP processor, 1 GB of RAM, and access to more apps including Hulu Plus, Netflix, Pandora – all of which come preinstalled.
