Barnes & Noble’s Nook line of tablets/e-readers does still exist, surprisingly, and they’ve just announced a refreshed version of the 10.1″ tablet to offer a better 2018 reading experience. It’s still preloaded with B&N stuff to access your digital library of books, but remember this has the Google Play Store, too.
So what do you get for $129? There’s a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 IPS display that’s been optimized for reading, some pogo pin connectors for attaching a keyboard or charging dock, and 32GB of storage with an expandable memory card slot. It also has a headphone jack, which is more than some other significantly more expensive tablets can say.
Barnes & Noble says you’ll get about 7 to 8.5 hours on a single charge using the tablet for browsing, reading, and watching movies, but you can download pretty much whatever you want on the Google Play Store.
There’s no info about what processor is in the tablet, or how much RAM it ships with, but the other specs honestly look like a pretty solid performer for the modest $129 price tag. And since it has the Play Store you could most likely just throw another launcher on the device and pretend it’s a cheap 10-inch tablet, which may be worth it to some people, especially around Christmas time.
Either way, if you want to pre-order it, you can find it at the link below.
