New Nook might show up next week

Written by Fudzilla staff



Just in time to take on Kindle Fire


Barnes & Noble is reportedly planning to introduce a new Nook tablet next week in New York.

The publisher has already sent out invitations for an event on Monday, November 7, with a prominent Nook logo and the promise of a “very special” announcement.

However, the company never discussed the introduction of a new tablet, so some are pretty skeptical. The launch would make a lot of sense, since it would closely coincide with the start of sales of Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet.

If this is the case, the low-end Android tablet market could see a very interesting showdown just in time for the holidays.

Yes to competition. At $199 these are going to be really attractive devices.

I plan to buy a Kindle Fire, but will gladly consider alternatives if anyone else comes up with something competitive.

Somehow I have my sincerest doubts. My guess is that B&N cannot compete in the price-range, by selling at a loss, which is what Amazon is reputedly doing.

If they do release a Fire-alternative, I expect it to cost $249, with perhaps some added connectivity options, or an SD card reader.
