8GB Nook Tablet official, Nook Color price drops
If you’re looking for the most affordable yet fast enough tablet out there, the Amazon Kindle Fire beat all others to the bargain with its $199 price tag, but now it’s got some serious competition from the Nook Tablet. The 7-inch Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet has just been officially unveiled in its 8 gig version retailing for just as much as the Kindle Fire - $199.

The Nook Tablet however offers expandable storage via a microSD card slot - a huge advantage for those wanting to get more data on their device. 

We’re not exactly surprised - we’ve heard rumor about the more affordable Nook Tablet a couple of days before and they turned out to be true.

With the new cheaper tablet, Barnes & Noble has also dropped the price on the Nook Color to $169.

I kinda think this is a wasted effort. Barnes & Noble did ok with the first Nook Tablet. I feel like they should have upgraded the ram, processor, etc and came out with a second gen version, or a Nook Tablet+

It only came out 3 months ago, why release another gen now?

I feel like it won't be a popular seller immediately and will therefore be a wasted investment. Unless B&N had some extra cash stashed in the first batch's budget and is using this as a test run, I can't see why a same gen, smaller memory version, is coming out 3 months after instead of a month after.
