巴诺平板性能不错,市场热销或有难度

JP Mangalindan 2011年11月10日

苹果和亚马逊正在平板电脑市场上展开激战,美国最大的连锁书商巴诺也不甘人后。但它的Nook平板有希望热卖吗?

左起:Nook Simple Touch(99美元);Nook Color(199美元);新款Nook平板(249美元)

    或许是不愿意在年末看到亚马逊(Amazon)凭借Kindle Fire平板电脑独领风骚,美国连锁书商巴诺(Barnes & Noble)也不甘寂寞地推出了Nook平板,同时也是它去年推出的Nook Color平板的升级版。

    Nook平板起价为249美元,将从11月16日起出货。它保留了老款Nook Color的外观,但是内部却焕然一新,搭载了主频1GHz的双核处理器,1GB的RAM和16GB存储空间(它的RAM和存储空间都是亚马逊Kindle Fire的两倍)。此外它还支持流媒体应用Netflix Instant和Hulu Plus。同时巴诺现有的几款电子书阅读器也开始打折处理:Nook Color降价到199美元;另一款阅读器Nook Simple Touch仅卖99美元,它的显示屏经过升级后,翻页速度快了25%,打字速度更快了,对比度也得到了提高。

    如果仔细观察,会发现Nook平板的外观几乎和Nook Color一模一样,只是灰色边框的颜色变浅了。第一代Nook Color出自设计大师伊凡•贝哈尔的手笔,喜欢Nook Color干净设计的人也一定会喜欢新款的Nook平板。据说它比Nook Color轻了10%,不过笔者并没怎么注意到。这款平板电脑无论如何也算不上笨重。不过像Nook Color一样,Nook拿在手里很有份量,感觉很结实,也就是说如果把玩久了,可能得两只手换着来,或者把它放到膝盖上。

    Not content to let Amazon hog the spotlight this holiday with the Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble unveiled the Nook Tablet, a hardware update to the Nook Color, launched last year.

    Priced at $249 and shipping November 16, the Nook Tablet keeps the Nook Color's look but swaps the internals with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in storage. (For comparison's sake, that's twice the RAM and storage of the Kindle Fire.) Also onboard: support for Netflix Instant and Hulu Plus. Meanwhile, Barnes & Noble's (BKS) existing e-reading devices received a price cut: the Nook Color dropped to $199, while the Nook Simple Touch will go for $99 with an updated display sporting 25% faster page turns, crisper text and improved contrast.

    Up close, the Nook Tablet looks almost identical to the Nook Color, save for a lighter gray case. In other words, if you liked Yves Behar's clean industrial design the first time around, you'll like the Nook Tablet. It's also 10% lighter, though I didn't really notice. The Tablet isn't heavy by any stretch. But also like its predecessor, there's a bit of heft and sturdiness to the device that means you'll eventually find yourself switching hands or propping it on your lap.

    Nook平板的主屏经过了升级,可提供多媒体快捷键,比如这个“更多内容”的下拉窗口。
