Barnes & Noble slashes Nook prices

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 12 Aug 2012 18:53

Barnes & Noble slashes Nook prices In a surprise move, Barnes & Noble has slashed the prices of three of their Nook e-reader and tablet devices today.
The 16GB Nook Tablet has dropped from $250 to $199 and the company also took $20 off the 8GB version, dropping it to $179.

Finally, the aging Nook Color tablet saw its price drop to $149, although the Nook Tablet offers far better 'bang for the buck.'

Barnes & Noble currently has around 28 percent of the e-book market as it competes with Apple and clear market leader Amazon.

Amazon is widely expected to reveal their Kindle Fire sequel in the next couple of months. The tablet should sell for $200, with the current generation model seeing a price reduction, potentially to $150.
