Barnes & Noble Cut Tablet Prices, Nook Color Now Starts At $139

Maximum PC: The tablet market is a pretty cut throat place to be these days. On the high end Apple simply dominates with the iPad, on the middle ground Google’s new Nexus line carefully appeals to those with a strong sense of price vs. performance, and Amazon fills out the low end. This isn’t to say Amazon’s tablet offerings aren’t well spec’d, but simply put, they aren’t worth the investment if you aren’t willing to commit to Amazon’s content ecosystem. Barnes & Noble has found itself awkwardly positioned against the competition these days, and are likely hoping a price cut on its older tablet lineup will help set them apart. (Gadgets)

Nook and Kindle tablets are still a waste of time at the prices they go at. I'd rather spend a couple more bucks and get a decent google play enabled tablet. You can still get a nook and Kindle app with that and not have the nook/kindle's stupid limitations.

But then, I suppose if you're just going to crack it, you might go with the cheaper tablets.
