Nook Color, Tablet Receive Price Cuts

It looks as if Barnes & Noble is trying even harder to get on your Christmas list as they’ve announced prices cuts for both the Nook Color and Nook Tablet. The Nook Color is now sporting a $139 price-tag while the Nook Tablet is sporting a $159 and $179 price-tag for 8GB and 16GB storage capacities respectively.

These two tablets are on the lower end of the tablet spectrum as they were recently replaced by the Nook HD and Nook HD+, two tablets which are meant to compete with Google’s Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad. However, the Nook Color and Tablet are competitively priced to compete with Amazon’s $159 Kindle Fire offering.

Both the Nook Color and Nook Tablet are dated as the color was released in 2010 while the tablet was released in 2011. These two tablets feature the same design, though they are offered in different colors and feature different specifications. The Nook Color sports a single-core CPU while the Nook Tablet offers a faster, dual-core chip. Both of these tablets run a customized version of Android and offer 7″ screens.
