Barnes & Noble has just announced the release of its new Nook Tablet 7. The $50 worth tablet will be available on Nov. 25 in time for Black Friday. The price is Barnes & Noble's take on Amazon Kindle Fire 7.
The company previously discontinued its Nook Tablet models back in 2013. The last models were Nook HD and Nook HD+. It then worked together with Samsung to create new Nook tablets that include Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 7.0, Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 and Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK.
The upcoming Nook tablet is not going to be co-branded by the Korean-based tech company. It is solely by Barnes & Nobles.

A Perfect Christmas Gift For Bookworms
Considering the price and its features, the new Nook Tablet 7 seems to be a good gift for bookworms. Though it is definitely not a powerful device as far as specs are a concern. This new tablet is not meant for extreme use. However, it might be decent enough for reading books. Other than that, don't expect much.
