New Nook will be released in two days
Amazon's Kindle Fire
and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet were both being released in November 2011, the two were expected to go head-to-head in the affordable tablet market category. However, the Kindle Fire has taken this realm by storm with its $199 price tag, and now, Barnes & Noble is looking to compete with a cheaper version of its Nook.
Barnes & Noble will be releasing a Nook 8 GB Tablet this month, which is less onboard storage than the current Nook Tablet. But it compares with the Kindle Fire, and will likely have a similar price tag.
The Nook 8 GB Tablet is expected to hit stores at midnight on February 22, 2012.
The Kindle Fire was released November 14, 2011 and the
Nook Tablet launched just one day later
. The Kindle Fire features 8 GB of internal storage, a 7-inch display, and 1024x600 pixel resolution for $199. The Nook Tablet, on the other hand, offers a 7-inch display, 16 GB of internal storage and 1024x600 resolution for $249.
