The new Nook Tablet is set for the retail price tag of $249 however later it is planned to be reduced till $199. Now the e-Book reader companies have started the new business e.g. Amazon Kindle Fire however they are not planning to compete in tablet business. Like Amazon, Barnes & Noble is also a book seller eCompany however they have analyzed the trends very well by jumping into the Tablet business by offering tablet devices incorporated eBooks to make things sell electronically rather than physical books. Amazon launched their Kindle range of Tablets which offers Amazon AppStore to download the eBooks online which had increased the sales of Amazon. Following the same stepsBarnes & Noble is all set to launch their own version of tablet which will also allow eBook reading along with other Tablet features.
However both these Book Sellers are way far then Apple iPad products and neither they are interested in competing with Apple products but the only competition is selling maximum numbers of eBooks using their only specialized eBook reader software. Recently in iOS 5 Apple has introduced the NewsStand Application which allows same kind of functionality in addition to the iBooks application.
