Phil Nickinson over at Android Central got his hands on some pre-release info about Barnes and Noble's next great iPad competitor, the Nook Tablet.
Let's start with the obvious: Even in a photocopied black-and-white image, it looks like the Nook Color, no? And it retains many of the same features. Same retangular design, same rounded corners, same hook in the lower left. The display is unchanged as well -- a 7-inch VividView IPS display at 1024x600 resolution and 169 pixels per inch. But inside. Man, this thing's been beefed up.
He's talking 1.2GHz TI OMAP, 16GB of storage, 4hrs. of video playback, 802.11 b/g/n, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, and while there's no mention of Android, much like the soon-to-be-released -- and no doubt aimed-squarely-at -- Amazon Kindle Fire doesn't do much to point out the little robot behind the curtains either. And while they don't have Amazon's online muscle, BN does have retail stores to show off their wares.
Hits November 16 for $249. Anyone getting that instead of a Kindle Fire? Instead of an iPad?
