Barnes & Noble announced Wednesday it will release a new Nook tablet on Nov. 25 and it will cost $50.
It features front-and rear-facing cameras and has 8GB of space, which allows users to add up to 128GB of storage with a microSD card. It also features a 7-inch IPS display and it has seven hours of battery life.
The Nook tablet will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, meaning you’ll have access to Google Play Store, being able to browse through the selection of games, apps, movies, music and TV shows.
This is great news for Nook fans, especially since the company discontinued its Nook App store back in March. The new tablet comes preloaded with the company’s audiobooks and magazines, and allows readers a variety of options to read excerpts for free.
“We're extremely excited to introduce our most affordable NOOK ever, just in time for the holiday shopping season, so customers can give their loved ones the gift of reading forever for less," Fred Argir, Barnes & Noble's chief digital officer, said.
The new Nook tablet is priced to compete with Amazon’s 7-inch Fire tablet.
It’s currently available for pre-order on Barnes & Noble's site, and starts shipping on Black Friday.
