Today is one of those days when I realize how lucky I am to have this job. As the guy behind the NOOK Blog, I get to bring you all of the biggest NOOK news as it happens, and today’s news is about as big as it gets!
First, we’ve just announced our newest addition to the NOOK family: NOOK Tablet—our fastest, lightest tablet with the best in HD entertainment. NOOK Tablet is available for pre-order now, and is expected to be available in-stores and on-line in plenty of time for the holidays!
