B&N readying yet another Nook for spring

A New York Times article from late last week tells us that Barnes & Noble is putting the final touches on yet another Nook product.  Expected to for Spring 2012, it’s the bookseller’s latest in a string of attacks against Amazon and the Kindle Fire.  Nothing else is know about the device aside from the fact that it exists.  So, with that, we could be looking at a number of possible scenarios.

…Barnes & Noble is trying to strike at Amazon with another device. At its labs in Silicon Valley last week, engineers were putting final touches on their fifth e-reading device, a product that executives said would be released sometime this spring…

A few possible scenarios for the latest Barnes & Noble Nook device:

  • New Nook Tablet with a larger display
  • Improved hardware for existing Nook Tablet
  • New product altogether
  • Enhanced Nook Simple Touch

Thus far only two of the four Nook products have been Android-based however we’re going to keep an eye on the developments.  Which of the above situations would you like to see pan out this spring?
