Barnes & Noble Dispatches Another Round of Nook Price Cuts
"Just in time for the holidays, these new lower prices make Nook a great gift for anyone in the family," said Jamie Iannone, President of Digital Products at Barnes & Noble. "With everything from interactive children’s books to the best collection of top 100 magazines in rich color, Nook is perfect for anyone who likes to read."
The price cuts come less than three months after Barnes & Noble last reduced the price on its Nook line. They also come as Barnes & Noble gets ready to releases its 7-inch Nook HD ($199) and 9-inch Nook HD+ ($269), both of which will be available to purchase starting November 8.
How do the new prices compare to the Kindle? Amazon's 8GB Kindle Fire sells for $159 with "Special Offers" and $174 without ads. There's no option for a 16GB model unless you step up to a Kindle Fire HD, which runs $199 for 16GB and $249 for 32GB, or $214 and $264 without Special Offers, respectively.
