It looks like a little news has slipped up that Barnes and Noble plan to announce a brand new e-Reader tablet on May 24th. So all you NOOKcolor lovers don’t have to wait long for the good news. For now we don’t have much to go on and this is really all that has been said. We still don’t know what they are planning, but with the success of the NOOKcolor I can only imagine they want to keep things going strong.
Recently the NOOKcolor got updated and they added all sorts of things like email, enhanced browsing, and games. Basically making it much more of a tablet than just a e-reader. So with Barnes and Noble looking to get more into the tablet part of this some are speculating that the May 24th news will be a bigger, better Android 3.0 Tablet that will also do some e-reading very well at the same time.
There is also a large possibility that they plan to release something better, yet thinner and more portable to keep up with the Amazon Kindle and to get everyone ready for the summer season, we wont know until more details surface or until the date mentioned above. If some of the stories floating around are true that Amazon is building a Honeycomb 3.0 Tablet, then that would probably make Barnes and Noble’s case to release a similar device even more likely. We will see in the coming weeks.[via Phandroid]
