Barnes & Noble’s NOOK eReader Returns As An HD Lenovo Tablet

Mar 22, 2021

Category: Tech

A decade or so ago, the Barnes & Noble NOOK was battling it out with Amazon’s Kindle for e-reader supremacy. In recent years, B&N seemed to forfeit the fight, releasing their last NOOK in 2018. But now the NOOK has come roaring back in the form of a full-fledged Lenovo Android tablet.

The NOOK 10” HD is the first major collaboration between Barnes & Noble and Lenovo, and it boasts a full-metal body and an 85 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Android-powered tablet naturally has access to NOOK eBooks, as well as Google Play, giving it a robust library of 3.6 million books. There’s also a quirky but welcome FM radio feature, Google Assistant capability, and the new Kids Space from Google, which hosts all kinds of media that’s appropriate for little ones. Front and rear cameras, Bluetooth connectivity, and dual Dolby Atmos speakers go well beyond what’s expected from an e-reader, taking this slate into full-on media-consumption tablet territory. But since this is a NOOK, reading is still the main focus, which is why the device comes with TÜV Rheinland-certified eye protection to reduce harmful blue light. The NOOK 10” HD will go on sale at Barnes & Noble this April for $130.
