It’s confirmed, Barnes & Noble will be launching something on Nov. 7, as the company sent out invites to the media for an event that morning in New York.
While the invite doesn’t specify what the star device of the event will be, we can only assume it’s a new NOOK Color. Though the name of device is unclear, it could be dubbed the NOOK Color 2, the Acclaim or something completely different; we do know the tablet will most likely feature an upgraded processor, among other new features.
As we reported last week, Barnes & Noble employees hinted that something NOOK would be happening on Nov. 7, claiming that we would be seeing a new NOOK Color sometime soon. While the company could reveal the $350 Acclaim, which surfaced last month, perhaps Barnes & Noble will release a lower-priced device to compete with Amazon’s upcoming Kindle Fire tablet, which begins shipping in November.
Whatever device Barnes & Noble unveils, we will be sure to keep you posted on its specs, price and availability.
