Now would be good timing, if B&N wants to try to leverage the expectation that Amazon won’t release a larger form-factor tablet until next year
Just in time to correspond with Amazon's expected tablet reveal, new rumors are popping up about Barnes & Noble's tablet strategy.
According to a new report on the e-book blog Digital Reader, the brick-and-mortal retail chain will launch a new version of its Nook device by the end of the year.
This one will be a pricier, more feature-rich gadget and is likely to look and feel more like a tablet than a traditional e-reader. The report suggests the new B&N product may carry a name other than 'Nook' and could be priced at around $349.
