This week the folks at Barnes & Noble and Lenovo revealed a collaboration that puts the name NOOK back in the spotlight. This is the new NOOK tablet, a tablet that continues the line of eBook-focused eReader devices with a machine that can also just... be a more fully functional tablet, too. This is the tablet you'll want to seek out if you're looking for media consumption, eBooks first, everything else second.
There are numerous e-readers around these days, some of them already sporting colored E-Ink displays even, but Amazon's Kindle still remains the household name in that market. Once upon a time, however, the Kindle shared that prime spot with Barnes & Noble's NOOK. The latter has long faded into the background but it isn't down for the count just yet. According to the latest word, old B&N is jumping back into the scene, this time with a NOOK tablet made by an unexpected new partner.
Although the Nook has pretty much disappeared into the background behind the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble remains a well-known name with a fair number of loyal customers. Those customers, however, may now have something to worry about as the bookseller reached out with some disturbing news. It reveals that its corporate systems fell victim to a cybersecurity attack and that the hackers may have gotten away with some important information about B&N's customers, potentially including their addresses.
Barnes & Noble has a new ereader for the summer, with the NOOK GlowLight Plus hoping to remind you that Kindle isn't the only deal in down. The new model has B&N's largest E Ink screen in the NOOK series so far, clocking in at 7.8-inches.
This week the Barnes & Noble NOOK 7-inch tablet was revealed in a new edition for the tail end of 2018. This device is simple - it's nothing flashy. It has a 7-inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels across it (that's less than the usually-standard 1080p for mobile devices of all sorts). It has a decent amount of internal storage, a microSD card slot for storage expansion, and it runs Android.
Just when you thought good ol’ Barnes & Noble has nobly bowed out of the e-book market, it makes a surprise comeback with a tablet of its own. Powered by nothing less than Android the new Nook Tablet 10.1 almost feels like an odd dream and a work of fiction. But to assure interested buyers that it’s really serious about the product, the bookseller is making available two accessories that turn what seems like just a glorified e-book reader into an entertainment station and even a mobile office as well.
Barnes & Noble is back with a new Nook device, the Nook Tablet 10.1". As the name suggests, this tablet features a 10.1-inch display and is primarily intended as an e-reading device for digital books, though it also has Google Play access. Among the notable features is a high 1920 x 1200 display resolution and up to 256GB of expanded storage.
You may have thought Barnes & Noble's NOOK range of ereaders was dead, but the bookseller has made a surprise new addition to the range, the NOOK GlowLight 3. Following on from 2015's NOOK GlowLight Plus, the new ereader eschews LCD touchscreen and broad tablet functionality, unlike B&N's more recent models, and instead goes back to an e-paper display. That's paired with an always-on ambient lighting system, that can change light tones depending on when you're reading.
Last month, reports surfaced from alleged Barnes & Noble employees who claimed they had been instructed to pull the new 7-inch Nook ereader off shelves. The issue was said to involve faulty chargers included with the tablets, but employees weren't instructed to inform customers, and there wasn't any public recall at the time. That has changed, with Barnes & Noble officially announcing a recall program to get users new chargers.
Barnes and Noble can’t win, it seems. The company’s troubled ereader devices received a needed and surprising refresh with the NOOK Tablet 7, a 7-inch tablet with a $50 price tag unveiled just a few months ago. Unfortunately, news surfaced shortly after launch that the tablets had a malware issue. Now the company is pulling the product off shelves entirely, but for a different reason: it seems there’s an issue with the device chargers.
Malware by the name of ADUPS has been discovered this week that the most recent version of the Barnes & Noble NOOK tablet. This is a device available for sale from Barnes & Noble currently, and the device works with ADUPS inside when first taken out of its box. Whatever you do, gift receiver on the eve or morn of your favorite holiday, do not connect that NOOK to the internet and start signing in to accounts - hold off!
