Nook tablet arrives a day before official release date

Barnes & Noble release Nook Tablet this Wednesday, a day earlier from the scheduled date of release

The Nook Tablets from Barnes & Noble Inc. started arriving in the stores as well as to the homes a day ahead of schedule. The same step was taken by the Amazon’s Kindle Fire as well, while they launched their tablet in the market this Monday.

Both the makers of these models might be very enthusiast about their sales for this holiday season. As we know that the Apple’s iPad which starts at $499 is dominant over the market, the Nook Tablet and the Kindle fire can also expect a descent sale rate as they have placed the tablets at a lower end pricing $249 and $199, respectively.

The Nook tablet doesn’t offer its own streaming services, but it includes preloaded software from Hulu and Netflix which lets users watch movies as well as TV shows through those subscriptions. 

The Nook tablet is a 7inch touch screen tablet with a dual core processor and 1GB RAM and runs on Google’s Android platform. It also comes with storage of 16GB of memory and an SD slot. It has a Wi-Fi connectivity for accessing internet.

William Lynch  points out that they offer free customer service at more than 700 Barnes & Noble stores which an online retailer like Amazon cannot provide.  They are currently selling the device online at Barnes & Noble stores and also by some other retailers, including Target, Best Buy, Staples and Fry’s.

So, if you are looking for something like this you can go for it as Barnes & Noble has quite a reputation in the e-book reader’s market since they released their first Nook in 2009.
