Folks at Gizmodo are reporting that Barnes & Noble’s second generation Nook and a new Nook Lite eReaders shall be hitting the market later this year. The tipsters who spoke to the website did not elaborate much over the next gen Nook, also known as Project Encore.
However, Nook Lite is expected to be a Wi-Fi only version and will launch in the second quarter. The price is expected to be $199.
The news comes at a time when there are speculations that a software upgrade is over the corner and is expected to be available for download this week. One significant update that this new v1.4 version will include is a full browser for internet browsing.
A tablet that wants to be an eReader and an eReader that wants to be a tablet – It’s all the same, don’t you think?
