After all these years, Barnes & Noble is selling yet another 10" Nook Android tablet

LCD tablets aren't exactly the best e-readers out there, but they're definitely a choice out in the marketplace. Companies slap on Android and their reader app and it's easy as pie. So easy that Barnes & Noble has opted to commission Lenovo to produce a successor to its 10" Nook Android tablet from 2018.

I bought a Barnes & Noble Nook in 2020, and I didn't expect it to be this good

Amazon has dominated the e-reader industry for so long that most of its competitors have either become niche products or faded out of existence entirely. I'd forgive you for thinking Kindles were the only e-readers sold in the United States, but not only is Barnes & Noble still around, but the company continues to release new Nook readers. And I bought one.

Barnes & Noble getting a new owner, as retail book market bravely soldiers on

Barnes & Noble getting a new owner, as retail book market bravely soldiers on

Barnes & Noble, being the largest bookstore chain in the United States, has had lasting power in an industry where its competitors have fallen to tech giants, namely Amazon. In the past decade, the company has been able to keep afloat by doubling down on supplying education clients and investing in its Nook and SparkNotes product lines, but it has straddled the line between profit and loss for the past decade. Today, multinational asset management firm Elliott has announced its intent to acquire the Barnes & Noble for approximately $683 million and has plans to invest.

Barnes & Noble announces $50 Nook 7-inch tablet, an Amazon Fire 7 alternative with the Play Store

Barnes & Noble's 10.1-inch Nook may be a hard sell at $129.99 for what is ultimately just a mediocre white label Android tablet, but the bookseller has just announced a $49.99 7-inch Nook tablet that might convince more buyers this holiday season.

Not 2011: Barnes & Noble just announced a $129 Nook tablet that runs Android

Yes, Barnes & Noble is still selling Nook devices. It can be easy to forget since you hear about the Nook so rarely, but the company is rolling out a new one just in time for the holiday season. Unlike past Nook tablets, this one isn't a re-branded Samsung tablet—it's just the Nook Tablet 10.1.

Nook 4.7 adds quote sharing, voice search, and several other improvements

Nook 4.7 adds quote sharing, voice search, and several other improvements

I love reading — my house is filled with books that I obsessively collect. In the grand scheme of eBooks, I think that Amazon Kindle has won the battle, but Barnes & Noble still holds on. Frankly, I cheer for Nook mostly because most of my digital library is there from my Nook Color/Nook Tablet days. All of that aside, the Android app has received an update to v4.7 after close to eight months of silence.

Barnes & Noble announces Nook Tablet 7", will be available Nov 25 for $49.99

Barnes & Noble has had limited success with their tablet lineup over the years. Although the company's e-ink readers have always been very good, its LCD tablets have had less luck. In 2014, B&N completely gave up making its own tablets (besides the e-readers), instead choosing to sell various Galaxy Tab models with Nook software pre-installed. Now the company has a surprise for Black Friday shoppers - a $49.99 Nook tablet.

Barnes & Noble To Shut Down Its Nook App And Video Stores, But Will Continue Selling eBooks In The US

Well you can't say they didn't give it a good try. After years of attempting to break into the lucrative tablet market with its own semi-exclusive platform, US bookseller Barnes & Noble plans to halt digital sales on its app and video stores. Diginomica reports that the company will stop sales on March 15th (Tuesday), and that customers who've bought content from either location have until then to download their apps and videos one last time. Connecting Nook Video content to accounts for either Disney Movies Anywhere or CinemaNow will allow customers to retain streaming and download rights on other platforms.
