Barnes & Noble Dropping Prices of NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet

Nook Tablet HookBarnes & Noble is dropping prices of its NOOK Color and NOOK Tablets, the company announced on Saturday. And just in time for the holidays. Starting Nov. 4, the Color will run for just $139, while its Tablets, both in 8GB and 16GB iterations, will run for $159 and $179 — no doubt a response to Amazon’s cheap line of Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tabs. Barnes & Noble itself has upgraded 7-inch NOOK HD ($199) and 9-inch NOOK HD+ (269) models set to come out on Nov. 8, rounding out a pretty healthy team of devices with access to the company’s growing ecosystem.
