Guess who is coming out with another new e-reader? Barnes and Noble, of course. Looks like real competition for the Kindle. It's a little smaller with the same screen size and a half an ounce lighter. The new nook is a little thicker than the kindle but maybe that's a good thing based on RUMORS of screen cracking issues. The pricing is the same as the kindle WiFi, and the new nook is also just WiFi but it comes with a memory card slot. The kindle does not. It also boasts a two month battery life - twice that of kindle.
Now I'm not showing favortism here. I have both a nook and a kindle. I prefer the color nook because I like the backlit screen (as I've blogged about here). It's just interesting, this battle between nook and kindle.
My question is who is going to be the first to bite the bullet and drop the price to less than $100 - maybe even close to $85? It will be interesting to see the result of that. I know I would buy one for my mother at that price. So one more sold. I would also use them in giveaways for my books. Bam, two more sales. But who will be first? Opinions?
