Nook Tablet coming November 16

Barnes & Noble will launch a new member of the Nook family of tablets and e-readers, the Nook Tablet, on November 16 for $249, according to leaked presentation slides published by Engadget.

Visually, it will be very similar to the Nook Color which, besides the price cut, will also get a software update with some nice additions, such as Hulu Plus, more magazines and comics as well as access to music via services like Rhapsody, Grooveshark, Pandora and MOG.

Finally, the Nook Simple Touch will reach version 1.1. The details about the update are sketchy, but Barnes & Noble claims the device has 25% faster page turns than any other e-reader and the longest battery life providing 2 months of reading.
