Kindle and Nook 3G Price Drops. Hello Nook Wi-Fi!

Apple iPad has stolen the limelight lately in the tablet form factor eBook reader space. And for a good reason. (plug: visit our young sister site Top iPad Resource for iPad stuff)

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.

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
