Barnes & Noble wants to reallocate your Nook Tablet memory for you

Nook Tablet - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Imagine this scenario. You just bought a brand new Nook Tablet, 16GB version. You’re so excited to get it home and load it up with all your favorite music and maybe even a movie or two you already have on your computer. You get home, unpack the tablet, hurry through setup, and then plug it into your computer to begin the transfer. You had a folder all ready to move on over to the tablet. You drag the folder on over when to your dismay a box pops up and gives you an error. Not enough space on disk. What? You thought the Nook Tablet had 16GB of space for you to use. You were only trying to move 1.5GB of data over. What happened?

Well what happened is that somebody who wasn’t thinking very clearly at B&N decided that you wouldn’t ever need more than 1GB of space for your own data. They setup the internal storage space so that you would have 1GB and the rest of the space would be for B&N material. Your downloaded books, apps, etc. Well they have recognized the error of their ways and want to fix your space allocation for you. All you have to do is bring your Nook Tablet into your nearest Barnes & Noble.

A trained Nookseller will be able to do the actual reallocating for you free of charge. When they are done with your tablet you will have 8GB of personal space, with the remaining 5.5GB for B&N content. Of course this might not be that big of a deal for you because unlike the Kindle Fire, the Nook Tablet has a microSD card slot that allows you to expand your personal storage by up to 32GB. If you have the 8GB version of the Nook Tablet, then you don’t have to worry so much about this because your tablet came with 4GB allocated for your personal storage, along with that handy microSD card slot.
