Best Buy has begun offering a budget-friendly 7-inch full color digital reader in the form of the Pandigital Nova Digital Reader. The tablet/eReader runs Android 2.3 under the hood and features an 800MHz processor, 7-inch (600×800) TFT LCD screen, and 4GB internal storage with microSD expansion slot. In terms of connections, there’s support for mini USB 2.0, micro HDMI output, and Wi-Fi (802.11n). Toss in a pair of cameras and you can see that the $170 sticker is quite a bargain.
The Pandigital Nova comes preloaded with Barnes & Noble software which should be the Nook application in sheep’s clothing. If the developer community rallies around this guy like they have the for $250 NOOKColor, this could quickly become a preferred budget tablet.
