Barnes and Noble have dropped the price on their original nook with Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. The price dropped from $259 to $199. This seems to be the new selling point, and not a short-time sale price. They have also introduced the new Wi-Fi nook, for people who can’t use or don’t want to pay for the 3G option. The new Wi-Fi nook is $149.00. The Wi-Fi nook only loses the 3G connectivity and 0.5 ounces – it retains all the other features and functions of the original nook. Learn more at the B&N nook page.
