Here is the latest report that Barnes & Nobles cut the price of Nooks and according to one of our prominent sources, Mashable said The 8GB Nook Tablet will now sell for $179, down from $199, while the 16GB version will be $199 from its original $249. The least expensive Nook Color will fall to $149 from $169.
All three devices, with their 7-inch displays, have access to a digital library of e-books, movies, television shows and music.
The price-drop may be a response to the runaway success of Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, which garnered glowing reviews. After the gadget debuted last month, stores quickly sold out of the 16GB model due to high demand.
