It was only a couple of months ago that Barnes & Noble released their latest Nook tablet, but if a recent report in the New York Times is right on the money, it seems that the company may have a new Nook device up their sleeves in time for a spring release. This rumored fifth Nook device was supposedly created in order to compete against Amazon’s Kindle Fire Android tablet which has been priced at a very competitive $199.
It is not clear as to what sort of device this new Nook will be, and based on previous release schedules, Barnes & Noble has typically used the fall season to release their new Nook devices, especially since it usually falls right in the middle of the holiday buying season. This would make the release of the rumored device highly irregular. However some have speculated that this device could just be an update/follow-up to the Nook Simple Touch which does seem rather likely. Either way we suggest you take this piece of news/rumor with a grain of salt for now until more information can be gathered in order to arrive at a more informed conclusion.Related articles:
