Barnes and Noble Introduces a New Nook 10’’ HD Tablet in Collaboration with Lenovo
Barnes and Noble previously debuted the NOOK tablet in 2018. Since then, the question of whether the company has discontinued the line of tablet and e-reader remained unanswered. But on 19th March, Barnes and Noble confirmed that they are about to reveal a new NOOK 10’’ HD tablet which they made in collaboration with Lenovo.
Tony Chen, a Lenovo VP, said in a statement:
“As part of our mission to enable smarter technology for all, Lenovo has been innovating a broad range of Android tablets over the past decade based on different user needs and budgets. We’re excited to turn the page with Barnes & Noble on the thin and light design of the new connected NOOK tablet that offers e-book lovers the best of both worlds — a full-featured Lenovo Android tablet beloved by fans with everything you know and want from NOOK at its heart.”
The new device runs on the Android operating system and features a 2.3GHz octa-core processor. It has a 10.1’’ HD IPS display which is believed not to be harsh on eyes by lowering blue light. It provides 32 GB storage that can be expanded by using a microSD card. The battery lasts up to 10 hours. Additionally, it also features front and rear cameras along with dual audio Dolby Atmos speakers.
This new NOOK tablet has squared-off edges and an aluminum back. And gives access to NOOK apps for e-book, newspapers, magazines, Google Play, and Google Assistant. The new feature includes Kids Space from Google, which is designed to provide age-appropriate book access to kids. Apart from all this it also includes FM. This amazing device is priced at $130 and will start shipping at the beginning of early April.
