Retail bookseller Barnes & Noble, Inc. today announced the new NOOK 10.1" tablet, just in time for the holidays.
The NOOK 10.1" will have the biggest display of any NOOK device, which is optimized for reading, as well as 2 in 1 tablet capabilities for browsing, taking pictures, or sending emails. The tablet will be available for pre-order online at BN.com/NOOK10.1 starting today, and will be on sale at Barnes & Noble stores starting on Wednesday, November 14, for just $129.99.
The NOOK 10.1" tablet offers 32 GB of storage space. It has a front and rear camera, headphone jack, Bluetooth capability, and pogo pins to easily connect to a NOOK keyboard or a NOOK charging dock. It also runs Android and ships with the Play Store, so you can do everything you’d usually do with an Android tablet.
An updated user experience on the NOOK 10.1" includes a custom home screen with easy access to your current reads and recent purchases, and an improved NOOK Bookstore and Library. Plus, readers can visit B&N Readouts to enjoy a daily feed of book excerpts, magazine articles, and blog posts from Barnes & Noble editors to tap into the latest in books.
For comparison, a 10.1-inch Samsung Tab A (16GB) goes for around $170, and that only includes 16GB of storage. A 10.1-inch Fire Tablet also costs $149.99.Specifications
