Rumor: 8GB Nook Arriving This Week

A new rumor has appeared in today’s Wall Street Journal, siting the technology website The Verge, indicating that book retailer Barnes & Noble could begin selling an 8GB version of their Nook tablet as early as this week.

“The Verge reported Monday that Barnes & Noble Inc.  is expected to release a new Nook Tablet with 8 gigabytes of built-in memory later this week. That could allow the book retailer to match or even undercut Inc.’s $199 price on its Kindle Fire tablet, which has 8 GB of memory. Barnes & Noble’s existing Nook Tablet, released about the same time as the Kindle Fire last November, has 16 GB of memory and sells for $249.”

I’ve toyed with the idea of getting a Kindle Fire to play with, but in all honesty, I don’t because I don’t ready many books for enjoyment.  At least the iPad, Kindle Fire, and the BN Nook can all play Angry Birds!
