Barnes & Noble has announced its latest 7″ Nook Tablet. With an IPS display optimized for reading, the Android tablet should be a nice ebook reader that fits in your bag, and its $49.99 price tag is another nice selling point.
Nook Tablet 7″ is a budget friendly, custom designed Android tablet that measures 7.40 x 4.20 x 0.39 inches and weighs 8.80 oz. As we can see from the images, the tablet has a low-profile and slim design.
