It has been almost three years since Barnes & Noble debuts a Nook tablet, and there has been plenty of speculation that the company will be ditching its tablets since then. Now Barnes & Noble is here to prove that they haven’t completely dropped the category in launch a new Nook 10 inch tablet which he designed in collaboration with Lenovo. The Android device is powered by an octa-core processor and has a 10.1-inch HD IPS display that has apparently been certified to be gentle on the eyes by lowering blue light.
It also has 32GB of storage with the ability to expand with a microSD card and can last up to 10 hours of web browsing on a single charge. In addition, it has front and rear cameras, as well as two Dolby Atmos audio speakers. As you might expect, it has access to the Nook app for eBooks, Newspapers & Magazines, Google Play, and Google Assistant. It has FM radio and Google children’s area, well, which is a new mode for Android tablets that allows children to access age-appropriate books.
Tony Chen, vice president of Lenovo, said in a statement:
“As part of our mission to make smarter technology possible for everyone, Lenovo has innovated a wide range of Android tablets over the past decade to meet different user needs and budgets. We’re excited to turn the page with Barnes & Noble on the thin and light design of the new NOOK Connected Tablet that gives eBook enthusiasts the best of both worlds – a full-featured Lenovo Android tablet loved by fans with everything you need. know and want NOOK at its heart. “
Like the Nook tablet released in 2018, the new model will set you back $ 130. It will be available in early April in physical stores and online on the Barnes & Noble website.
