New York – Barnes & Noble dropped the prices of its Nook Tablet and Nook Color e-reader/tablet.
The Nook Tablet is now available at $179 for the 8GB model, down from $199, and $199 for the 16GB version, down from $249.
The Nook Color is now available at $149, down from $169.
The price cuts are permanent and not part of a limited-time back-to-school promotion, a spokesman told TWICE.
The devices can be purchased at all of Barnes & Noble’s nearly 700 stores nationwide, online at Nook.com, and through other retailers.
The Nook Tablet with 7-inch display downloads more than 2.5 million books as well as movies, TV shows and music. It also downloads thousands of apps from the B&N store and delivers web browsing and email.
The Nook Color with a 7-inch screen is positioned as offering “tablet essentials,” including books, magazines, interactive children’s books, apps, access to top video and music services, email and web browsing.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
