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.
