B&N Nook To Counter Amazon Kindle Next Week
It’s all about getting ahead in the tablet arena these days what with most mobile makers pushing out tablets and Amazon with their Kindle and now apparently Barnes & Noble has plans to announce a new ereader that may counter the Amazon Kindle.
According to the guys over at Mashable, B&N have issued invites to press for an event scheduled for the 24th of this month that could see the launch of the new low-end Nook ereader, which apparently will be priced lower then the Amazon Kindle.
This apparently coincides with info concerning the “launch of a new ereader device” filed with the SEC on the 4th of this month.
Rumours has it, as reported by Cnet, the new B&N ereader may be a low priced, monochrome, compact Nook device that would compete with the Amazon Kindle, but other than that no other details are available but I guess we’ll find out more come the 24th.
