Big news in the ereader world today: hefty price drops for both the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook. The newest version of the Kindle is now available for $189, down from the rather pricey $259. Meanwhile, B&N isn’t resting on their laurels; the 3G Nook is down to $199, and they’ve also announced a Wi-Fi only version which will be available for $149.
Hot diggity, I love watching competition in action. Another few drops like this and the average reader may start taking ereaders seriously.
