New Nook 3G clears FCC

July 18th, 2010 by · 9 Comments · hardware news

The paperwork for a new B&N Nook showed up on the FCC website on Friday. The hard data (pictures, specs, etc) were withheld, so I’ve spent the last couple days pondering what few hints that B&N gave us. Note: this isn’t the Nook Wifi; that went through the FCC last month. No, this one is referred to as a 3G model.

The only data I have on the new Nook is that it has a new 3G chipset, it still uses AT&T, and that B&N gave it 2 codenames:

  • CR Nook
  • Bravo Delta

I still don’t know what CR stands for, but I’m guessing that Bravo Delta could stand for Better Display (but that would be too obvious). But if I’m right, then this Nook could have the new E-ink Pearl screen. Either way, if B&N follows they’re usual pattern we’re going to see a new Nook in a few weeks.

UPDATE: It’s late Sunday, and I’ve changed my mind. I think CR stands for College Ready and Bravo Delta stands for Bigger Display. This new Nook could be the one that ties in with NookStudy.
