Following the recent launch of the new Nook HD and HD+ in the US and the UK, Barnes & Noble has dropped the prices on their existing tablet range ahead of the holiday season. The cheapest Nook, the somewhat aging Nook Color is now down to just $139, with the Nook Tablet being reduced to $159 and $179 for the 8GB and 16GB versions respectively.
With the cheapest Amazon Kindle Fire coming in at $159, the Barnes & Noble devices are priced competitively. It isn't the first price cut we've seen in recent months on the existing Nook range, but as we head into the busy holiday season, more choice for less dollars is a choice we'll take.
