Following the price cuts issued by Barnes & Noble for the two versions of their Nook e-book reader, online retail giant Amazon has just reduced the price of their own Kindle e-book reader by $70. Today, you can buy a brand new Amazon Kindle for only $189, which while more expensive than the Wi-Fi only Nook that currently sells for $149, is a full $10 cheaper than the 3G-enabled Nook, making the Kindle a better deal overall for anyone’s money. Because of this, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Barnes & Noble make yet another price on the Nook in order to compete. Could the $100 Kindle or Nook be on the horizon? I hope we get to find out soon enough.
