Barnes & Noble has confirmed our recent post regarding an affordable 8GB tablet option to the Amazon Kindle Fire with the immediate release of the 8GB Nook Tablet. The new Barnes & Noble 8GB NOOK Tablet is basically a scaled down version of its original 16GB model, they have basically cut down everything.
It comes with 8GB of storage and they have cut the memory down to 512MB of RAM in order to reduce the cost of the device making it an affordable $199USD next to the Amazon Kindle Fire’s pricing. Even though its storage capacity was scaled down for cost effective purposes, the company still power the device with the same 1GHz dual-core processor. The 8GB NOOK Tablet is presently available for purchase.
