(Pocket-lint) - Barnes and Noble has announced a Nook-branded Lenovo tablet.

Called the Nook 10-inch HD tablet, it costs $129.99 in the US and features an all-metal, modern design with squared edges.

Other features include a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, 32GB of storage (expandable by microSD card), a 1080p 10.1-inch IPS display (with smaller bezels for an 85 per cent screen-to-body ratio), and a 10-hour battery life. It's considered a follow-up to the Android-powered 10.1-inch Nook from 2018 that also cost $129 when it launched, though it has been unavailable to purchase since last summer.

In fact, other e-readers from Barnes and Noble, including 2017's Nook GlowLight 3 and 2019's GlowLight Plus, are all listed as sold out online. Some retail stores still list in-store stock available, however. This has caused some to wonder whether Barnes and Noble planned to discontinue the line. But, apparently, the stock issues are all due to “exceptionally strong” sales over the past year.
