If you've been holding off on getting an E-reader, now may be the time to buy. Barnes and Noble just cut prices on its Nook Tablet by as much as 20 percent. The Nook Color dropped to $150.
The 8 gigabyte Nook Tablet, which is lighter and has more memory that the color, was reduced to $180. The price tag on the 16 gigabyte tablet was slashed to $200.
The move comes after speculation that Amazon will launch a new version of the Kindle Fire. Competition in the E-Reader world is fierce, as E-books continue to grow in popularity.
Since May of 2011, Amazon has sold more E-books than print books by a ratio of 105 to one.
The current version of the 8 gigabyte Kindle Fire will run you about $200. But prices for tablets can run even higher, especially if you want to do more than just read books.
If you're looking for Bluetooth, cameras, or even more memory, then the basic Samsung Galaxy tab 2 will put you back $250.
There's been rumors that Barnes and Noble would launch a new Nook Tablet in late September. The version is expected to have updated screen technology.
