It appears something NOOK related will be coming from Barnes & Noble on Nov. 7, according to recent reports.
We originally heard about the new NOOK Color, dubbed the Acclaim, last month. While the report didn’t give way to many specs, it did say we should expect to see the $350 device sometime in October. Well October is almost over, so perchance this low-powered tablet will be the star of a Barnes & Noble event in a few weeks.
Although, we could also be seeing the sneaky tablet codenamed “Encore,” which is speculated to be another updated version of the current 7-inch NOOK Color.
Either way Barnes & Noble is probably unveiling something NOOK on Nov. 7, taking advantage of the small window before Amazon’s Kindle Fire begins to ship. Barnes & Noble already answered to possible Kindle threats by dropping the price of the NOOK Simple Touch Reader refurbished to match that of the ad-subsidized new Kindle.
