A price war is raging between booksellers Amazon and Barnes & Noble over their 3G eReaders.
Shortly after B&N announced a $60 drop on the Nook 3G Monday morning, Amazon responded with a $70 cut in the price on the 6-inch Kindle. The score now is Nook $199 and Kindle $189—making the Kindle the lowest price fully featured eReader on the market. The two eReaders were previously $259 each.
B&N also announced a new low priced Nook eReader that sheds 3G capability to offer only WiFi over-the-air book downloads. The “Nook Wi-Fi” is available for order today online at $149.
