As it was expected, the new Google device has set the precedence of new standards for 7-inch tablets. Before the launch of Google Nexus 7, the 7 inchers were taken for casual work, web browsing or keen reading at the most. But the Google device has now pushed other OEMs to take this market segment seriously, including Barnes and Noble.

New LCD screens are rumoured to be in the making at B&N labs, according to various sources. Though specifics of the new displays have not been revealed, it is said to incorporate a new and out-of-the-box technology that will astonish the world, the source has claimed. A “revolutionary screen technology,” the source said.

The new LCDs will be part of the new Nook Tablets coming this year. One of the pioneers of the segment with the release of Nook Color, are now playing catch-up to the Google Nexus 7 that was well received in the market immediately after the release.

However, its not only Nexus but Amazon’s Kindle Fire is also a big hurdle in the success of the largest book store chain in the world. Amazon released the Kindle Fire last year for a mere $199 that was embraced by the market with both arms. The Fire was a near-to-perfection device for a 7-incher market albeit a few missing options.

The Fire did not have an expandable memory options and was fixed at 8 GB. Moreover, it lacked a couple of important ports in addition to Bluetooth that is a mandatory feature in mobile devices these years.
