Nook Tablet review and specifications
 Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet

It was a matter of time before Amazon's Kindle Fire finds its biggest competitor. As it seems it won't be the iPad 2 as everybody guessed. There is a new player in the tablet market and it will be a strong competition. When Barnes & Noble announced their NOOK tablet it had almost the same effect when Amazon presented the Kindle Fire. It looks like the hunger for tablet devices is getting bigger and bigger and new strong competitors are appearing every month.
