Barnes & Noble Announces $199 Nook
Barnes & Noble is fighting fire with fire. The book retailer Tuesday morning debuted a new version of its Nook tablet that matches Amazon’s Kindle Fire in price and memory. The new device is identical in form to its predecessor, except with 8 gigabytes of storage and a $199 price tag. Barnes & Noble announced the new Nook the same day it reported better-than-expected third-quarter profit and improved sales.
