Barnes & Noble announced the newest addition to its Nook devices, the 7-inch Nook Tablet. The device is comparable to Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but has slightly better hardware, battery life and storage capabilities. The tablet costs $250 and has access to the popular apps Pandora, Netflix and Hulu Plus.
