by Reads (3,444)

Barnes & Noble is in it to win it, the eBook reader market, that is. The Kindle competitor today dropped the price of its 3G and WiFi-enabled nook eReader to $199. That is $60 off its original price and $60 less than its main competitor, the Amazon Kindle.

In addition, Barnes & Noble announced a new WiFi-only model nook, priced at $149, making it one of the least expensive mainstream eBook readers on the market. Other than connectivity, the WiFi nook sports same specs, including a small LCD touchscreen under the main eInk display.

Finally, Barnes & Noble announced a nook software update that provides device owners free access to all AT&T WiFi hotspots.

Both models are now available at Barnes & Noble and Best Buy locations as well as their respective websites.
