Best Buy drops price of Nook Color In anticipation of the upcoming "Nook Tablet" (Nook Color 2), retailer Best Buy has slashed the price of the first-generation Nook Color.
Best Buy has dropped the price $50, from $250 to $199.

The move will also help the device compete against the upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire, which will retail for the lower price.

B&N's upcoming Nook Tablet will allegedly offer the same 7-inch touchscreen along with a powerful 1.2Ghz dual-core processor and 16GB internal storage. The device will launch at the $250 price point of its predecessor.

Amazon's tablet offering will have lesser specs but will be deeply integrated with the Amazon ecosystem of shopping, e-books, music, movies, TV, cloud storage and streaming.
