With new Kindle Fires coming today, Barnes & Noble preps new Nook Tablet for September launch

Nook Tablet Release Date 2012

With the spotlight turning to Amazon (AMZN) as it prepares to announce brand new Kindle eReaders and Kindle Fire tablet later today, Barnes & Noble (BKS) reportedly has no plans to sit idly by. Digital Trends claims knowledge from an inside source at Barnes & Noble in reporting recently that the bookseller will launch a new Nook Tablet later this month. Details beyond the rumored release timeframe are scarce, though the site does suggest that the tablet may run Windows 8 rather than the custom Android build found on Barnes & Noble’s previous Nook Tablets. The recent tie-up between Microsoft and Barnes & Noble suggests this might be a possibility, but Digital Trends doesn’t seem terribly confident in its claim.
