Nook Tablet gets just 1GB for unique content
The lead analyst for mobile at PC Mag, Sascha Segan, confirmed that the Nook Tablet made official earlier this month will only allow 1GB of its 16GB of built-in storage space for content not purchased from Barnes & Noble. Segan is flabbergasted by this move, and rightly so, as Barnes & Noble CEO Bill Lynch himself called the competing Amazon Kindle Fire "deficient as a media tablet" because of its meager 8GB of storage space.
The Nook Tablet also has an SD card slot that can accommodate up to 32GB cards and non-B&N content is likely to be accessible using this method.
The 7-inch tablet is due to arrive in stores tomorrow, November 17, priced at $249. It sports a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 2.3, though it's heavily customized. It can display 1080p video.
