  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of memory
  • Pre-loaded with Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Pandora
  • Weighs less than a pound
  • 11.5 hours of battery life

  • Over 2.5 million books and magazines, and thousands of apps available

The Nook Tablet is currently up for pre-order and becomes available on November 18, 2011.
