Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

There are several different companies introducing new products this month, but one firm that hasn't announced plans for an event or any new devices (at least not yet) is Barnes & Noble. That doesn't mean that the bookseller isn't prepping some new hardware, though, as a new report claims to have some details on B&N's successor to the Nook Tablet. According to Engadget's "reliable source," Barnes & Noble is working on a new tablet that's described as being very light with an "incredible display" at 243 ppi. A new video store is also said to be in the works. There's not much else known about the new tablet just yet, but the device is reportedly due this fall.

Meanwhile, some details on another popular bookseller's upcoming device may have leaked out thanks to an app log. Engadget has posted an image from an app's hardware usage log that shows a listing for an "AmazonKFTT," which is a different designation that the current Kindle Fire that goes by "AmazonKindleFire." The listing also appears to indicate that the "AmazonKFTT" device sports a dual-core processor and is running Android 4.0.3.

Barnes & Noble first introduced the Nook Tablet in November of last year, so it wouldn't be a shock to see the slate's follow-up arrive sometime this fall. As for Amazon's next tablet offering, users likely won't know that the new Fire is packing an Ice Cream Sandwich base since Amazon will likely heavily skin the device like it did with the original Fire. What will be interesting is seeing what kind of software tweaks Amazon decides to lay on top of ICS. Thankfully we man not have much longer to wait, as Crazy Mobile September continues tomorrow with an Amazon-hosted event in California. If any Fire-related news is announced, you can bet that you'll be the first ones we tell.
