Driven by fierce competition in this market, we are seeing price drops from 2 of the ‘other’ eBook readers.
Amazon Kindle and NOOK from Barnes and Noble.
Barnes & Noble NOOK
Barnes & Noble just confirmed the NOOK Wi-Fi model at $149 and is dropping its NOOK 3G model to $199. You can order it online from Nook.com or Best Buy and will begin shipping this week itself.
Barnes & Noble just recently provided complimentary access to AT&T’s Wi-Fi hotpsots including its own book stores.
Following this Amazon has just dropped it’s Kindle e-reader (6” display) price down to $189 with free shipping. It was previously selling for $259.
It can wirelessly download eBooks and has a nice gray and black e-ink screen that is superior for sunlight reading as opposed to the glossy screen of Apple iPad.
The larger 9.7” display Kindle DX is also available at $489.00
