The world of the E-Reader/Budget Android tablet is a battleground between Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The Nook Tablet is an excellent device with one key drawback. It costs $50 more than the Amazon Kindle Fire. The battle looks set to ignite once more though as there are apparent plans in place to launch an 8GB variant of the Nook Tablet. 

According to documents obtained by The Verge, Walmart will be launching this device at 12.01am, on Wednesday Feb. 22. The key in all this is with that reduced on-board storage, should come a reduced price. The 16GB Nook is priced at $249, so realistically we would expect an 8GB version to be priced similarly to the Kindle Fire. Wednesday isn't that far away, so we don't have too long to wait to find out.
