Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet Announced

A new tablet has been introduced by Barnes and Noble. The device is called the Nook Tablet and is the next device in the series of Nooks from B&N. Technical specs reveal that it has 1GB of RAM and runs a 1GHz dual-core processor.

The screen uses IPS technology (like the iPad) which means it has a wide viewing angle. B&N say it has vivid view and has “unprecedented viewing angles”. It has 16GB of storage built in which can be expanded by another 16GB by an SD card. Other features include 1080p support, 9 hours of battery (when watching video)

When it launches in the US it will cost $249 with the launch date being next week. There are no details of it coming to the UK just yet.

The Nook tablet looks to be an excellent device and with a price tag of $249 with the dual-core processor and 16GB RAM it’s a very worthy competitor to other popular devices such as the iPad as well as the Kindle Fire when that launches. B&N controls about 27% of eBook sales in the US which also makes it an attractive option.
