Looking nearly identical to the Nook Color, the new Nook Tablet’s differences are mostly “under the hood”. But these hardware differences amount to a lot of new possibility for the Nook Tablet. A dual-core GHz TI OMAP4 processor with 1GB of RAM give it speed, while 16GB of storage give it plenty of room for your media. The display is a 7-inch 1024×600 IPS “Vivid View” screen. It also includes wi-fi and has a battery life of 11.5 hours.
Arriving November 18th, the new Nook Tablet is available for pre-order now.

With the dimensions of the Nook Tablet virtually the same as Nook Color (Nook Tablet is slightly thinner and lighter), all the covers and cases for the Nook Color will work with it.
Simple, but effective, the neoprene case from Barnes and Noble is a great way to protect your new Nook. This case includes an easy to open zipper that reveals the top edge of the device for easy removal and is also water resistant, making it ideal for a day at the pool. It is available in marine (blue), flamingo (pink) and night (black).
Available for Pre-order and shipping on June 10th, the all-new Nook (2nd Edition) is a big departure from the original.
The new Nook is designed to be much more simple and streamlined compared to both the original Nook and Nook Color. Barnes and Noble refers to this device as “The Simple Touch Reader”.
