Consumers are awaiting Amazon’s first Android multimedia tablet, the Kindle Fire, priced at US$ 199 but according to various sources there will soon be another book – friendly Android tablet on the market – the Nook Tablet, by Barnes & Noble.
As of now, Nook is an e-reader, but one with a lot of different versions. Some are black and white, some are color, some offer Internet access and others don’t.
The tablet is expected to be a lot like the Nook Color Reader, though one would expect there to be some more features. The price of the Nook Color is expected to be reduced from $249 to $199 to directly compete with the $199 Kindle Fire tablet.
Nook Tablet will sport a:
- 7″ inch Vivid View IPS color touch sensitive display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels,
- 1.2 GHz dual – core processor,
- Around 8 hours of battery life (with WiFi switched off)
