Following an announcement earlier this month, Barnes & Noble seems to be preparing an imminent release for their newest Nook tablet. The 8GB version seems to be pretty much the same as the $249 version, just packing less internal storage. This will obviously mean the tablet will come at a cheaper price, now becoming closer in competition to the Kindle Fire. All that’s known for sure about the upcoming release is that WalMart is planning to release them on Wednesday, February 22nd, and the tablets should have already arrived in stores.
