Nook and Kindle e-readers receive price cuts, but is the iPad a factor?

As soon as Barnes and Nobles was ready to drop the price of its Nook e-reader from $259 to $199 yesterday, Amazon took less than a day to follow suit with a price cut that puts the Kindle selling for slightly less at $189. It was almost like Amazon was waiting for B&N to make the move so they could go along.

Does it really matter why they did it ? It's just a good thing for consumers & we should be glad "something" is stirring up competition. ;-)

I'm kinda excited to see this. I have been tossing around the idea of getting a Kindle for a couple months now, and this certainly pushes me more towards buying one.


Agreed, I these get near the 100$ mark, I'm in. 129.99$ sounds reasonable. And it's summer time, time for some good reading. ;)

$300 tops for a universal e-reader. $50 for any 'proprietary' e-reader (Kindle, Nook, etc.).
