Barnes & Noble calls its Nook tablet, offered currently for preorder, the “lightest, fastest tablet with HD entertainment.” At $249, it’s $50 quite its competition, Amazon’s Kindle fire, that Jeff Bezos presented with fanfare many weeks ago.
The newest tablet reader to hit the market, features :
- the 7-inch touch screen slate grey
- weighs a small 14.1 ounces into that Barnes & Noble packs
- a 1 GHz dual-core processor,
- 1 gigabyte of RAM,
- 16 gigabytes of internal storage – double the number of storage offered by Amazon’s Kindle fire. (Plus, the Nook table comes with a micro SD memory card slot to extend memory with external cupboard space.)
It’s got constant basic styling – single black bar home button and rounded hook, along side a rubberized backing – during a sleeker grey color.

Barnes & Noble made a splash last November with the launch of the $249 Nook Color, the first mainstream dedicated electronic reader with a full-color touch-screen. And the bookseller recently pushed out a major software upgrade for Nook Color to widen the appeal of its “reader tablet.”
The new device weighs less than 7.5 ounces, or 35% lighter and 15% thinner than the original Nook Wi-Fi was when it came out about a year and a half ago
The latest Nook fetches $139, which puts it above the $114 Amazon is charging for a Kindle with ads. You can pre-order online and in stores now and the updated Nook should start shipping to customers June 10th. You’ll also be able to pick one up at BestBuy, Walmart, Books-A-Million, and Staples for $139 at the same time.

Barnes & Noble has dropped the price of the Nook, as competition in the electronic-reader market heats up with the entry of a variety of devices, such as Apple’s iPad.
B&N on Monday slashed the price of the Nook 3G from $259 to $199 and introduced a Wi-Fi-only version for $149. The latter comes with complimentary access to any AT&T hotspot, while the 3G model can tap into the carrier’s wireless broadband network at no charge for buying and downloading e-books from the bookseller’s online store. The 3G model also supports Wi-Fi.
