B&N to reveal $250 'Nook Tablet' next week As expected, Barnes and Noble will unveil their Nook Color sequel next week at a New York press event.
According to a leak (via Slashgear), the company will call the e-reader the "Nook Tablet" and sell the device for $249, a $50 step up from the upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire.

To warrant the price, the Nook Tablet will have better specs than the Fire including a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage and a light 7-inch frame.

Additionally, the device will have integrated Netflix and Hulu Plus.

If accurate, the Nook Tablet will hit stores on the 16th, one day after Amazon is shipping their Fire.

Think I'll stick with the Fire. The fact this comes with "integrated Netflix and Hulu Plus" IS NOT a selling point for me.


Just my $0.02,

At least the nook will have expandable memory via microSD and a user replaceable battery
