Barnes & Noble Slashes Price Of Nook Tablet to $180 and Nook Color to $150


Seems we’ve finally arrived to that point in time where budget Android tablets are getting even more… budget. With the launch of the modestly priced Kindle Fire and Nexus 7, older affordable Android tabs are now finding themselves struggling to stay relevant, slashing their already low-prices in order to compete. Take the Nook Tablet and Nook Color which Barnes & Noble announced today has been reduced to $180 and $150, respectively.

Still, at only a $20 discount from the Tegra 3 powered Nexus 7 — it’s tough to say if consumers will find this a good enough deal. What do you guys think? Is $20 enough to sway you into a device with (much) lesser specs?

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. No way!

  2. Feeling the heat from the Nexus 7

  3. $20 isn’t enough B&N. Try harder.

  4. Make it $99

  5. depends on which continent you live on..

  6. I already own a Nook Tablet and have since about novemember it is a nice little device and does everything I need from it so I wont be upgrading anytime soon unless the device decides to break on me then I may look into getting the 8gb nexus 7. Most of my stuff is normally streamed from my dlna server here at home and I can access it while on the go as well so anywhere I have a internet connection wither its throught my phone or wifi I can access my content. I still have over 12gb free on my current 16gb nook tablet so yeah no need for a sd for me.

  7. Mr chavez you grammar is all over the shop.

  8. I don’t like what the nexus 7 has become ….its going to get rid of all the budget competition

  9. It’s not enough for me, but I know what I am buying. It might be enough for the common person who wants name brand and is only looking at price. I’ve had my rooted nook color for about 1.5 years and while it does the job, it’s a bit sluggish and limited in what it can do. I rarely even use it, but I’m at a pc most of the day and don’t need to use it.

  10. Vermillion Hells no!
