Barnes & Noble Likely to Launch a New Nook on Monday
"Please join us for a very special announcement," is all the invitation reads, along with the date, location, and RSVP information. Other than that, B&N isn't saying what it has up its sleeve, and there aren't any official leaks that we're aware of.
With Amazon getting ready to launch it's low-cost Kindle Fire tablet and having already released a batch of affordable eReaders,speculation all over the Web is that a new Nook is on the way. According to The Wall Street Journal, the new device -- if in fact there is one -- will "differ significantly" from the Nook Color hybrid eReader/tablet.
The Los Angeles Times seems to agree, but also mentions the possibility that B&N could shake up its Nook Friends social network. Us? If we were gambling, we'd put our money on new hardware.
