Nook Color 2, Coming Soon?
Barnes & Noble is said to be working on a Nook Color 2, but with a catch....
According to TechCrunch, Barnes & Noble is working on a new version of its Nook Color that could be available sometime this September. However, Nook Color 2’s specs and features are currently thin on the ground — except that it is believed to have the same 7-inches display too. Regardless, there were reports that suppliers of components are ready to ship the device’s parts.
TPK Holdings is rumored to supply the eReader’s touch panels, and will be assembled by Inventec. There are also rumors that E Ink will provide the back plates of Nook Color 2. But if that would be the case, it could put an end to the Nook Color 2’s tablet potential. A color e-paper could jeopardize the option to get a custom Android ROM, though it could improve battery life. That said, owners of the current Nook Color may stay away from the next model.
