Amazon matches Nook price

A quick update on the story from this morning about the launch of a Wi-Fi-only version of the Nook. Barnes & Noble priced their new model at $149 and cut the price of their 3G model to $199 from $259.

Reacting to the B&N launch Amazon has decided to cut the price of its Kindle to $189.

As I mentioned this morning, the market for b&w e-readers is a tad crowded. In the meantime, Apple must be enjoying its position right now while it waits on H-P and others to launch their own color tablets running mobile operating systems.
