There is a new Pandigital e-reader and tablet hybrid on the block and it is rolling into Bestbuy locations today! The new device will set you back a modest $169 and is powered by a later version of Google Android 2.3.
The new Pandigital Nova is a positive step forward from the companies first forays into the tablet world, with the woeful Pandigital Novel. The company is back and offering a solid product that is sure to impress. It has a 8 inch TFT LCD screen with a resolution of 600×800. It is rocking a 800 MHZ Samsung processor and has 4 GB of built in storage. If this is not enough you can surely increase it to 32 GB via the MicroSD. What about Books? You can use the built in Barnes and Noble Android app and connect right up into the ecosystem and download books like the wind!
Personally this e-reader I think looks good, but I am waiting on the Super Nova we just saw at the FCC a mere three days ago. This one has dual cameras and similar specs to the Nova, but has a capacitive touchscreen.
