The Galaxy Tab A NOOK was made available only last August with a $139 price tag. Fans of the Nook readers are about to see a new tablet in the form of the Nook Tablet 7. This one is only a rumor for now although we don’t doubt a new tablet will be introduced soon.
Barnes & Noble has already discontinued production but started to license the brand to other companies like Samsung. However, a Nook was spotted on an FCC listing, giving us the idea that a new Nook Tablet 7 might roll out.
Listed on the FCC file are the specs of a mysterious tablet starting from the 3000mAh battery to a MediaTek MT8163 quad-core ARM and Cortex-A53 processor, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card slot, and micro USB port. It appears Barnes & Noble is bringing back the Nook tablet if you we are to believe this FCC visit.
The old Nook tablets didn’t have Google Play Store support because the Nook App Store was the default. Interestingly, this new version is said to already run the Google Play Store which means you can download most Android apps available. The old Nook tablets have a special software where users can by content, newspapers, and ebooks but it might change soon based on the recent information we gathered.
