The Digital Reader published “some juicy insider info” claiming that Barnes & Noble will be issuing a new Nook Color model next month:

All the unsubstantiated rumors had come out of Asia, so I wasn’t sure that I  should take them seriously. I did, but that was only because B&N have been clearing out the refurbished units at a decent discount. And until today the unsubstantiated rumors were all I had.

A source told the blog that Barnes & Noble held a meeting last week related to marketing plans for the device. One of the slides allegedly mentions four Barnes & Noble devices next quarter, one of them being a tablet. The four devices are the Smart Touch with a price tag of $139, the Nook Color, the $249 Encore and the $349 Acclaim. The latter two are supposedly tablets, with the Encore likely being a seven-inch model. The blog claims the Acclaim tablet “is the Android tablet that GameStop are currently beta-testing”.
