One month after launching a new 10.1-inch tablet, Barnes & Noble has taken the wraps off of a much smaller slate.
The new Nook Tablet 7-inch is now available from Barnes & Noble for $49.99. As its name suggests, this new Nook Tablet offers a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600. Also included is a 2MP rear camera and VGA front camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a battery that B&N says will last for up to seven hours of reading, watching videos, and browsing the web. There’s 16GB of built-in storage, too, with a microSD slot that’ll let you add up to 128GB of additional storage.
On the software side, the Nook Tablet 7-inch runs Android and comes with Google Play so that you can download Android apps. Barnes & Noble has preloaded some of its own software, like a Browsery app that’ll let you talk with others about your favorite books and get reading recommendations. There’s a Nook Bookstore included as well, and parental controls that’ll let you manage what content your kids see.
This 7-inch Nook Tablet offers a smaller alternative to the 10.1-inch model that was released one month ago. While the other model’s big screen would be great for watching videos, reading newspapers and magazines, and more, the smaller 7-inch model could be a better option for folks who want a small, light tablet that they can easily throw in their bag and hold with one hand while reading books.
