Nook Color Stories December 23, 2011

Plex, the very popular streaming media application, is on its way to the Nook Color and Nook Tablet’s Store, reports GigaOm. For those unfamiliar with Plex, it is a popular application available on iOS and Android that lets users manage their home’s media content through a custom server.

Plex’s wide variety of supported media formats, available plug-ins, and the Windows and Mac application make it arguably the best solution for controlling media across the household. The Barnes and Noble review team approved Plex, so it should see its way onto the Nook Store in the coming days.

The Nook’s Plex app will be very close to the Android app, but it will have an added layer of approval process for software titles, GigaOm reports.

The Nook Color and Nook Tablet’s popular competitor, the Kindle Fire, also has Plex. The addition of Plex to the Nook Store will give customers the ability to better manage their media — something that customers love to do with their cheaper tablets.

The Nook Color is getting a $50 price slash, which brings the e-reader tablet to $199 — Android Central found today. Along with the price slash the Nook Color will be receiving a new software update 1.4 that brings Hulu Plus and the music streaming services Rhapsody, MOG, and Grooveshark to the tablet. All of the music streaming apps come with free trials, and Pandora also comes pre-loaded.

With the price slash, the Nook Color is a certain buy for the upcoming holiday season and it also comes in at a nice Kindle Fire competitor. But how about the Nook Tablet?

Deal: Get Pixelbook at 25% off: $750!

Nook Color Stories September 23, 2011

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”.

That little marvel above means the Acer iConia Tab is $299 after coupon, the ASUS EeePad Transformer is $299 as well and the Dell Streak 7 drops to a paltry $199.  The Motorola Xoom drops to $399.  Not bad for folks who have a Staples nearby.

Remember, only one per person per day and not good for the Nook Color – which you can get from Barnes and Noble for $199.
