Have you heard about the new Barnes and Noble's NOOK Tablet, and would you buy it?
Barnes & Noble plans to announce on Monday a $249 Nook Tablet with double the memory and storage of the coming $199 Kindle Fire from Amazon.com. In many ways, the Nook Tablet is similar to the Nook Color and the Kindle Fire, including a 1024 x 600 touch screen.
The Nook Tablet will have 1GB of RAM, up from the 512MB in both of the other devices. The Nook Tablet will also have 16GB of internal storage, plus a 32GB expandable SD card, up from the Fire's and Color's 8GB of internal storage.
Processing speed is one of the other main distinctions. The Nook Tablet's processing speed, on paper, is the fastest of the three, and it features a 1.2 GHz dual-core OMAP4 chip. Compare that to a 1 GHz dual-core processor in the Kindle Fire and a single-core processor in the Nook Color.
