Press release:

Quote:

The NOOK 10.1” will have the biggest display of any NOOK device, which is perfect for reading, as well as 2 in 1 tablet capabilities for browsing, taking pictures, or sending emails. The beautifully designed and lightweight new tablet will be available for pre-order online at BN.com/NOOK10.1 starting today, and will be on sale at Barnes & Noble stores starting on Wednesday, November 14, for just $129.99.

“The soft-touch feel and lightweight design make it a perfect holiday gift for readers who want to enjoy their favorite books for hours, while also being able to browse, watch shows, listen to music, or send emails all from one device.

“The new NOOK 10.1” provides a complete reading and entertainment experience on our biggest display yet,” said Bill Wood, Chief Digital Officer for Barnes & Noble. “The soft-touch feel and lightweight design make it a perfect holiday gift for readers who want to enjoy their favorite books for hours, while also being able to browse, watch shows, listen to music, or send emails all from one device. The NOOK 10.1” is truly a gamechanger for the NOOK lineup.”

The NOOK 10.1” is a lightweight tablet with 32 GB of storage space for building an extensive digital library. The tablet also has multi-function use, including a front and rear camera, headphone jack, Bluetooth capability, and pogo pins to easily connect to a NOOK keyboard or a NOOK charging dock.

NOOK customers will also notice an updated user experience on the NOOK 10.1”, with a custom home screen with easy access to your current reads and recent purchases, and an improved NOOK Bookstore and Library. Plus, readers can visit B&N Readouts® to enjoy a daily feed of book excerpts, magazine articles, and blog posts from Barnes & Noble editors to tap into the latest in books.

Special Holiday Price and Cookbook Bundle

Also starting on November 22 and running through December 31, Barnes & Noble is offering a cookbook bundle promotion. Customers can purchase the NOOK 10.1” with a charging dock for $159.99, and receive $50 worth of Good Housekeeping eCookbooks with hundreds of delicious recipes, while supplies last (total value of $214.94).

“Our cookbook bundle is the perfect gift for foodies who like to have the great recipes at their fingertips,” Wood said. “With the NOOK 10.1”, cooks can follow the recipe with the large, easy-to-read screen, and then snap a photo to share the results.”

Customers can pre-order the new NOOK 10.1” at BN.com/NOOK10.1 starting today and find it at their local Barnes & Noble store starting on Wednesday, November 14. They can also share the excitement on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat (bnsnaps) and Facebook, using the hashtag, #NewNook.

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be 1920X1200. That's the resolution the Lenovo Tab Pluses have.

The new Nook tablet seems like a comparable tablet. No word on processor or RAM. But if the specs for the new Nook match a Lenovo Tab Plus, that's a nice tablet at a nice price.

That would be my guess, too.
224ppi at 10 inches is more like 1080P class than 4K.
Especially at that price.

But it's B&n and losing money on hardware is sort-of their specialty.

It gets cheaper yet. For those interested, might as well wait until Nov 22nd.

Yes, but the spec sheet on the site didn't mention it, and I thought anyone who was looking at buying this tablet would want to know.

Of course, one would assume an Android device has BT, but I wanted to be thorough.

32 GB. Up to 256 GBs more with the SD Card slot. (I just realized, you probably mean the memory for the OS, not storage. Sorry.)

Yes, backlit. This is a tablet, not an e-reader (e-ink).

Thanks for helping me convince myself I don't need this.
After googling IPS confusion reigned.

Hm. I'm in the market for a new tablet right now, and this might work. I'll wait to see what the CPU and RAM are like, but if they're decent than for $120 this is on the short list.

Arithmetic supports that. 1920x1200 at 224 dpi gives 10.1" diagonal.
