While the folks over at Barnes & Noble might be working to alter their Android tablet strategy, they have not quite yet forgotten about the NOOK digital bookstore alongside the hardware that will be able to read such eBooks. In fact, it has been brought to our attention that Barnes & Noble could very well roll out a new eReader in due time, not to mention the possibility of additional new tablets being in the pipeline even as you read this.
Why do we say this? Oh yeah, perhaps the appearance of a next-generation NOOK over at the FCC website might have something to do with it. While this upcoming NOOK eReader might resemble something that the company is offering at this moment, there will be at least one improvement. This improvement would be the apparent inclusion of 4GB of internal memory, which is more or less double of what one would find within a NOOK Simple Touch or NOOK Simple Touch With GlowLight. Assuming 2GB is enough space to stash around 1,000 eBooks, then doubling that amount would also see up to 2,000 eBooks stored on the new NOOK device. Needless to say, we await with bated breath for additional information on the device to be released when it becomes official.
