B&N drops Nook 3G to $199

I just came across this on the Barnes & Noble website. Okay, _now_ the Nook Wifi price makes sense. I can't wait for Amazon to respond. I bet they're going to drop the Kindle to $150.

So which would I recommend? Even though the price difference is only $50, I still think you should buy the Nook Wifi. All you get for that extra $50 is the privilege of buying from the B&N ebookstore anywhere you can get a cell connection. I don't think it's worth it.

BTW, now that they have a Nook Wifi there's no reason for B&N not to sell it internationally. I wonder when they're going to announce it?

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
