Just when you liked it, Barnes & Noble has nobly bent out of the e-book market, it makes a surprise recurring with a separate tablet. Powered by nothing less than Android, the new Nook Tablet 10.1 feels almost like an odd dream and a work of fiction. But to insure interested buyers that it’s really serious with the product, the bookstore hands out two accessories that make what seems like a glorified e-book reader to an entertainment station and even a mobile office.
Not that you I want to tax Nook Tablet 10.1 too much. While the 1920 × 1200 IPS LCD screen can do a good reading and viewing, the rest of the specifications can limit usage to more moderate tasks.
Includes a four-wheel based MediaTek processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, expandable up to 256GB with a microSD card. The battery is advertised to hold about 8 hours of “regular” usage, but of course it will fall when usage increases. And when you have Android 8.1
Oreo and the Google Play Store just under your fingertips, it’s a rather tempting suggestion.
Even more if you throw in any accessories. The official Smart Folio case with the keyboard puts in the pointers that remove the need for charging or nice Bluetooth connections when you write your next novel after inspiration by reading one. Do you need a break from all written words? How about giving you a visual and auditory experience by docking Nook Tablet 10.1 while watching YouTube or Netflix.
The charging dock costs $ 34.95 while Smart Folio Cover with the keyboard goes a little higher $ 39.95. B & N Nook Tablet 10.1 does not cost as much at $ 129.99 and includes some extras like Nook Cloud, Browsery, and Parental Control.
