As we reported two days ago, Barnes & Noble re-thought its Nook Tablet pricing policy. The company downgraded its tablet from 16GB to 8GB aiming directly at Amazon’s successful Kindle Fire. The launch also comes after the company announced a drop in its quarterly net income. The new tablet will be sold at $199, which is $50 less than the 16GB variant (but matches the Kindle Fire’s price). Unlike its direct competitor, the Nook also sports a microSD card slot in order to compensate for the recent loss of storage capacity.

On the other hand, B&N didn’t forget about the Nook 16GB Tablet — which currently reserves 12GB of the available 13GB of internal storage exclusively for Nook Store content – offering to repartition its storage in a way that would grant the user more space for non-Nook Store stuff. “If you want to re-configure the internal memory of your Nook Tablet 16GB for additional personal storage, you need to visit your local Barnes & Noble on or after March 12 for help in doing so”, B&N states in a footnote that you might not notice when checking out the webpage at the source link.
