Barnes & Noble to Release New Nook Tablet With Reduced Specs


When Barnes & Noble announced its Nook Tablet a few months back, it placed a lot of emphasis on its features and how it is superior to Amazon’s Kindle Fire Tablet. It did have a lot going for it. It had a more RAM (1GB to 512MB) and storage (16GB to 8GB), and these specs were used to justify its price, which is more expensive than the Kindle Fire (the Nook Tablet is $250 while the Kindle Fire is $199).

But all of that pride for the superior specs has fallen flat as Barnes & Noble announced that it will be coming out with a new version of the Nook tablet that has lower specs – in fact, it will have the same specs as the Kindle Fire in terms of RAM and storage. The price of this new product is $200.

But despite the reduction in specs, the new version of the Nook tablet still kept other features that still distinguishes it from the Kindle Fire. For example, it still has the microDS slot for storage expansion. It also has the VividView display that is far superior to the Fire’s display. But with the reduced RAM, gadget pundits are saying that this will mean that the responsiveness of the original Nook tablet will be sacrificed. This will mean more sluggish performance, the same criticism the Kindle Fire is getting because of its own RAM limitations.
