Nook Color Price Cut Starts Today – $199

Three days ago I was the first to tell you about the NookColor getting a price cut at Walmart. According to the ad I found that price cut was supposed to start today and it did.I've just learned that Best Buy also dropped the price of the Nook Color today. You can now find B&N's year old tablet for only $199 in stores. Of course, the price cut should come as no surprise; B&N's massive leak on Thursday told us we were going to see it.

I've looked over the other stores, and I can see that Staples aren't showing the lower price yet, and Walmart show $229, not $199. Curiously enough, Walmart are also stocking the NC refurb for $149, and I personally think that's a better deal.

I can't find the Nook Color listed on several of the other chains that are supposed to carry it, so I can't tell you if they dropped the price. You'll have to check in store. But my guess is that a lot of the retailers might drop the price in the Sunday ads, but they might not do it until next week.

But before you run out and buy the $199 NC, please remember that B&N are going to announce a new $249 Nook tablet on Monday.  It has a dual core CPU, more storage, and it's shipping on 16 November (probably). I think the extra $50 it costs is worth it. Of course, if I were going to get one I'd get the refurb, but that's just me.

So here's one more piece of news that I won't be reporting on Monday, but I'm still going to NYC. I'll be at the B&N event bright and early, and I will try to liveblog the presentation (3G permitting).

    I bet we’ll see this price drop tomorrow with all the other retailers.
