Barnes & Noble announced a new Nook tablet today, and for 2021 the bookstore has partnered with Lenovo for the launch of a new 10.1-inch tablet they’ll launch in April by the name of Nook 10.
If you want to save a lot of time, I can tell you that this tablet is just an ordinary Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD (2nd Gen) that has B&N’s apps pre-installed. Even the box it ships in is pretty much the same.
As for specs on the Barnes & Noble Nook 10, it is an Android 10 tablet that features a 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, and it’s powered by an octa-core MediaTek P22 processor with options of 2GB/4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage.
Other mentionable specs are stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB C port, and a 5000 mAh battery capacity.
The weigh of the new Nook 10 is 420 grams and the thickness is 8.25mm.
The tablet comes with Barnes & Noble’s Nook apps preinstalled, but other than that it’s just like any other Android tablet, and it has full access to Google Play. So even if a user decides to no longer subscribe to Barnes & Noble content any longer, they can still use the tablet as before, and even uninstall the apps if they want, and run any other media streaming service or book app.
This new Nook tablet for 2021-2022 will launch at an April date that will be announced later says Barnes & Noble.
