B&N's; Nook Tablet tops Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet in specs, but costs $50 more.
The battle of the color eReaders is about to begin, and now there's a new contestant.
If two weeks isn't enough time to finish the e-book you borrowed for your Kindle (and possibly your Nook), you may be able to keep it longer.
Amazon's brand recognition, bevy of existing e-reader owners, and e-commerce platform make it a formidable rival suited to go head-to-head with Apple.
Gift buyers may like what they see in the new Amazon and B&N tablets, particularly if rumors about the devices' sizes, specs, and prices hold true.
After months of rumors, Amazon's Kindle tablet could be here soon.
The Nook and Nook Color will go on sale at Radio Shack on October 3.
With a competitive price and Amazon's wealth of content, the new device could put a dent in other manufacturers' tablet sales -- maybe even Apple's.
Analysis: Reading and purchasing books on the go is easy with Nook for Android.
