Barnes & Noble set to launch the Nook Color 2 on November 7

According to some anonymous sources inside Barnes & Noble, they're set to unveil the Nook Color 2 on November 7. And not a moment too soon, with Amazon's Kindle Fire set to be released later that month.

There aren't a ton of details available on what the new tablet will feature, but expect B&N to aggressively attack Amazon on price and functionality. It's sure to have a deeply-integrated shopping system for getting media onto it, and we'll have to see what other tablety goodness they stick in there. And with the Kindle Fire dropping on November 15th, expect the Nook Color 2 to be released soon after the announcement on the 7th, if not on the 7th. We'll keep you updated.
