Just two days ago we chimed in that a new tablet could grace the lineup by B&N and now the company led by CEO William Lynch has officially unveiled its existence and full spec wrap-sheet. The New Nook Tablet comes in at 7 inches, under a pound and is very sleekishly thin.
Lynch went on to state some pretty important selling points including the vividview touchscreen, powerful performance as well as its in-store support that wouldn’t be afforded by competitor Amazon. Equally satisfying is the amount of features that it didn’t skimp out on during development. Also noted on the official website was that Angry birds, which has stretched its reach to every device manageable will be available on the tablet as well.
Nook Tablet Specs
Getting down into the nitty gritty specs, the Nook tablet will be powered by a dual-core Texas Instruments 1 GHz processor, with 1 GB of RAM and 16GBof storage already onboard. Further sweetening the deal is the recent news of the incorporation of apps, HULU Plus, and Netflix.
Oh and I almost forgot the biggest selling point that B&N is going after; its price! The Nook Tablet will sit comfortably in that price zone that has yet to be capitalized on, except for the HP TouchPad firesale.
You can get your Nook Tablet by Barnes and Noble when it becomes available on the 18th at an attractive $249, and pre-orders are welcome. As we mentioned previously, the release of the affordable Nook Tablet will be dropping the prices of some of the existing Nooks on the market. The Nook Color will cost you $199 now while the Nook Simple Touch will lower the bar to $99.
