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.

Who? Well, for one, I obviously do, since I posted it originally. ;)
In all seriousness, I didn't think the locked bootloader would be that much of an issue at first (when they initially started showing up), but given the issues I've had with my DroidX due to the bootloader lock, at least as far as I'm concerned, any android device that doesn't at least have a way to unlock the bootloader might as well be stillborn.
I don't have a problem with them shipping locked (for the sake of the general populace), but for goodness sake, if we know what we're doing, let us unlock the things! And if we brick our phones and on our own heads be it!
