Wifi-only Nook: $149, Wednesday
June 21, 2010 | 1:04 pm
Engadget just received a screenshot from Barnes & Noble’s inventory management system showing a “NOOK WiFi” device listed at $149, with a release date of Wednesday, June 23rd.
No indication of what it looks like, whether stores will have any on hand, or whather the screenshot is accurate. Still, it’s interesting to see one of the “big boys” weigh in (barely) below the $150 mark. The two-digit barrier fast approaches.
Update: PaidContent reports that the price of the 3G Nook is also falling from $259. to $199. Those wondering about the price difference due to the 3G module might find that reassuring.
Wonder if Amazon will follow suit. Will this touch off an e-ink reader price war?
