Barnes&Noble to pull the wraps off all-new Nook next week

Barnes&Noble to pull the wraps off all-new Nook next week
A big “N” from Barnes&Noble and an exact time and date: November 7th, 2011. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what this is all about - a brand new Nook. The e-book reader/almost tablet stirred Android tablet waters with its very affordable price tag and color touch screen. 

It was running on a heavily modified Android 2.2 Froyo, but first it was devs who managed to uncover the hidden potential of the 7-inch tablet and then it was B&N itself that added heaps of functionality to the Nook Color.

What will this year bring? After a mind-boggling $200 7-inch dual-core tablet by Amazon, the bar is raised pretty high, but even if B&N only matches it, chances are that it will drop another bomb in the e-reader/tablet space. But now speculation season is officially open, what is it that the new Nook will bring? Chime in with your suggestions in the comments below.

As usual, advertising disguised as a news piece

You could say that about most articles here. Any news about a new product can be read as an ad for that product. Some people here might want to know about this latest bargain tablet, especially if it can be rooted to run Honeycomb or ICS.

Been waiting for the new Nook to see what it will be. Most importantly if it will be locked down, or if you will still be able to use the SD card to boot another OS. I think that will be a big factor in how well it does. A locked down Nook will mean the Kindle fire wins this war. If B&N leaves it open, then they have a fighting chance to compete on the same level as the Kindle Fire. It is to everyone's advantage to keep this competition going and hopefully staying close. $200 e-readers that nearly double as full function tables are great values!
