Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader dropped to $150

Barnes & Noble Nook dropped in price

One of the common speedbumps encountered by people interested in e-book readers is the cost of the device itself. This barrier to entry is getting easier to overcome, especially with today’s announcement of Barnes & Noble Nook. It may not get the same kind of attention as the Amazon Kindle, but it is just as powerful a device and even has a color screen to boot.  If you want the new Wi-Fi only version, you’ll just have to shell out a mere $150, that’s on par with the Kobo.

The new Nook e-reader was previously leaked out, but now the all-white Wi-Fi device has been made official. If you want 3G, you’re getting a break too, as the 3G Nook has dropped $60 in price, now being sold for just $200.  Aside from the addition of the 3G radio, the other difference between the two units is that the Wi-Fi has a white back, whereas the 3G has a grey back. Personal preference, I suppose, but the always-on connectivity might be worth the extra fifty bones.

    I have the 3G nook and there are no fees or contracts. As the Barnes and Noble clerks explained it Barnes and Noble pays for the 3G because they want you to buy books. This is a huge boon as it also has a browser that lets me check my e-mail on the go.
