Barnes & Noble may soon be announcing the Nook Tablet 2 with a fall release date and, according to the expectations-raising rumor, it’s going to have an “incredible display.”
The source backed up that description, telling Engadget that this Nook Tablet follow-up will have 243 pixels per inch.
By comparison, this bests the current (but soon-to-be-outdated) Kindle Fire at 169 ppi and the iPad 2 at 132 ppi.
The source is also quoted saying that the new Nook Tablet will be “super light” despite the high-end display specs.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that the rumored Nook Tablet 2 will be going on any sort of design-changing diet. The current Nook Tablet weighs just 14.1 oz right now, lighter than the Kindle Fire, which comes it at 14.6 oz.
Adding to the mix
The news from this source is well timed for Barnes & Noble.
