Barnes & Noble will now partition your Nook Tablet in-store

Nook_tabletBarnes & Noble's Nook Tablet a pretty awesome device. The successor to the Nook Color (a tablet we considered one of the best deals if you rooted it) the Nook Tablet offers up good performance and a great ecosystem for just $250. 

On top of all of that other aforementioned stuff, the tablet also has 16GB of RAM storage. Unfortunately, 15GB was unusable by the user; B&N held that storage responsible for storing content from the Nook Shop. Granted, you can add a microSDHC card into the provided slot for more storage, but having that extra 15GB would obviously be a great addition.

Luckily for Nook Tablet owners, Barnes & Noble has found out that setup might not be ideal for everyone. Right now, you can walk yourself and your tablet into the nearest Barnes $ Noble and repartition it. After the repartitioning is complete, you'll have 8GB to store your own content on the device, while 5.5GB will be saved for Nook Store stuff.

I'd argue that this still might not be the best setup, as I'm sure there are a lot of Nook Tablet users who would rather decide what goes on all of the internal storage, but an extra 7GB is still a welcome addition, nonetheless. Have any of you who own one gone through this yet?
