Yesterday there were rumors about Barnes & Noble releasing a cheaper version of its NOOK Tablet today, and it looks like they were right on the dot. Barnes & Noble today announced the launch of the 8GB version of its NOOK Tablet. With the same features of the previous NOOK Tablet, the new tablet has a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, microSD slot, WiFi, a 7″ VividView display, 8GB of internal storage, and a battery life that boasts 11.5 hours of reading time or 9 hours of video viewing.
The new NOOK Tablet will go on sale starting today with a price tag of $199, which puts it at the same price as its biggest rival, the Amazon Kindle Fire. Barnes & Noble’s older tablet, the NOOK Color also received a price cut and now only costs $169 each. The NOOK Tablet – 8GB version will be available from Nook.com and in Barnes & Noble stores, and retailers like Best Buy, Target and Walmart in the coming weeks.
