Nook HD and other eReaders dropped in price
We have some great news for you today if you have been thinking of purchasing a new eReader for yourself or for someone you know, as in the UK the Nook HD and other devices from Barnes & Nobile have been dropped in price.
There are more people now reading books and other digital content via the various eReaders and tablet PCs that are available. Now as part of the Get London Reading initiative Barnes & Nobile has slashed the prices of its entire range of devices that starts at only £29 for the Nook Simple Touch, which compares to £69 for the entry level Amazon Kindle.
The Nook Simple Touch GlowLight has also been reduced to £69 from £109, which offers an eReader with a useful backlight for night time or low light reading. There have also been some price reductions on the company’s tablet eReaders that offer users the Android operating system, with the Nook HD seeing a £30 price cut to £129.
There has been an even bigger price cut of £50 on the Nook HD+ that now costs £179, and while the entry level Nook Simple Touch can be purchased on the company’s website with the rest of the range, and other retailers also have the Nook devices on offer.
It is not known how long these price cuts will run for and already a number of retailers are already out of stock of the £29 Simple Touch, and certain resellers have yet to cut the prices of the Nook models involved in these price reductions.
The likes of Argos, Asda, Currys, PC World, Sainsbury, and John Lewis stock the Nook devices and at the time of writing the Nook website has stock of the Simple Touch with free delivery.
