A $199 Nook Tablet takes aim at Amazon’s Kindle Fire

GigaOM: Recent rumors of a lower priced Nook Tablet have turned into reality as Barnes & Noble announced a $199 tablet on Tuesday. The lower-priced model is nearly identical to the current $249 Nook Tablet; the only differences are internal as the slate has half of the memory and storage of the current model. Barnes & Noble also dropped the price of its Nook Color from $199 to $169.

The story is too old to be commented.
