Barnes & Noble Nook Wi-Fi e-reader introduced at $149, 3G model dropped to $199
Barnes & Noble’s Nook e-book reader is now available in a Wi-Fi only version for $149. Alongside its official announced, Barnes & Noble also cut the price down of the Nook 3G to just $199. Both e-book reader versions are pretty much the same, and boast 3.5-inch color LCD screens for navigation coupled with a 6-inch E-ink display for reading e-books (Barnes & Noble says there are over one million titles available right now, with sample free e-books being given away for free). Both the Nook 3G and the Nook Wi-Fi can connect wirelessly to Barnes & Noble Wi-Fi networks for free and starting today, all AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots as well. The main difference between the two is that the Nook Wi-Fi can only connect to wireless networks via Wi-Fi, while the Nook 3G can do that either through Wi-Fi or through 3G. Barnes & Noble has also released a new software update for all Nook devices, which may include improved reading features.
