Nook has shown up in benchmark testing, this time sporting a Tegra 4 chipset. The tablet, which has yet to be launched despite continued rumors it would be throughout the year, has taken another step closer to reality. Though Barnes & Noble haven’t officially announced the device, benchmark results at least tell us this one is real, and probably coming soon.

Barnes & Nobles renewed its commitment to its NOOK devices, hinting to at least one release scheduled for the holiday season and more under development. This is a complete U-turn from previous reports of the company axing its line of tablets.
Barnes & Noble has announced a NOOK Video app for Android. The app is already available in the Play Store and it brings the ability to rent or buy movies and television shows from Barnes & Noble. There is also support for those who happen to have a collection of UltraViolet titles.
announced support for the Barnes & Noble NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ tablets earlier in the week. The catch was, while the support was announced the downloads were not yet available.

Barnes & Noble confirmed they'll no longer be working on and manufacturing the NOOK tablet. Instead, the company will license out the brand moving forward, instead of building their own.

Barnes & Noble has announced a price cut for the NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ tablets. This time around the price cuts are for those in the US market, however the newly lowered price will only be available for a limited time.

Barnes & Noble. Just like Amazon, they took the approach of launching Android tablets with their own Nook Store for apps, but today they've changed their tune.

NOOK Color tablet has been around for some time. It has seen its fair share of update from B&N specifically, but they've basically stopped any sort of support. While the device runs on Android we've seen various ROM's and development for the slate, and now Android 4.2 has arrived (and beat most tablets) thanks to those hard working developers.
