Nook Color 2 Announcement Coming on November 7th?

According to The Digital Reader, Barnes and Noble’s upcoming sequel to the Nook Color, which may or may not be called the Nook Color 2, will be announced on November 7th. They apparently have, count them, three sources who have relayed them information and November 7th appears to be the day that the company unleashes its competitor – or lack thereof – to Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

That’s not all Barnes and Noble will be introducing either it seems.

In addition to the new Nook Color, the company will also refresh their retail spaces with a new Nook department that will take the place of the Music, DVDs and Audiobooks departments.

Other than that possible announcement date, the Nook Color 2 remains shrouded in mystery.

Previously, we had heard that it would be coming with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1.2 GHz OMAP processor, and a $250 price point.

    For the Nook Color 2 to be successful, it needs to be priced similar to the $199 Amazon Fire.

      Or do more, or have markedly more capability than the Fire, which is coming in as an equal, and that just barely, to the original Nook Color. Less memory, less battery life, same size screen. The Nook Tablet will have twice the on-board memory as the Fire and has both a micro-SD slot and a microphone, neither of which the Fire will have. More capability, more battery life, lighter weight, perhaps B&N has priced the NT correctly.
