Barnes & Noble Wants To Re-Configure Your Nook Tablet’s 16GB of Storage To A More Reasonable Allocation

The folks over at B&N must feel pretty bad about how horribly the Nook Tablet’s 16GB’s of storage has been poorly allocated because they want to make it right with you.  In very fine print, the company has stated that they will be allowing users of the Nook to come in and have their internal storage re-partitioned to a more reasonable configuration, allowing more personal space on the Tablet.  As of now, the device offers 16GB’s of storage of which 13GB’s are strictly for Nook Store content.  That leaves the consumer with a mere 1 GB of personal space to do with what they please.  The decision came in light of the release of the 8GB model of which users had a whopping 4GB’s of the 5 GB’s available to them as personal space.  The company added a quiet statement on their home page which states the following:

If you want to re-configure the internal memory of your NOOK Tablet-16GB for additional personal storage, you need to visit your local Barnes & Noble on or after 3/12/12 for help in doing so.

We’re tipping our hats towards B&N for taking the time to perform this daunting task for the consumer, as it shows where their business model lies, obviously with the customer.  And we’ll take it.  Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
