Android-based NOOK SimpleTouch drops to $99 on improved hardware

The Kindle portfolio is presenting a real challenge to Barnes & Noble, but they aren't taking it lying down. This morning at the NOOK event in NYC, they took a little time in between singing the praises of the Nook Tablet and telling you why you shouldn't buy a Kindle Fire to officially lower the price of their e-ink model, the Nook SimpleTouch. The 6-inch reader will drop to a price of just $99.

Today only: Get A Nook Color for just $150

The Nook Color is a favorite of Android modders, and for today only, you can get one for a cool $100 off the retail price. Daily Steals has a refurbished version of Barnes & Noble's versatile wifi 7-incher for just $150 - only a few dollars more than an e-ink Nook or Kindle, and well below any brand-name Android tablet you're likely to see at the moment.

RadioShack soon selling Barnes and Noble Nook and Nook Color

Just when you thought you couldn't get a Nook at RadioShack, they come up and surprise you by carrying the Nook. They've also got the Nook Color, both of these device available very soon in most if not all of their thousands of locations across the USA and Mexico. What you need to know is that while Barnes & Noble continues to grow their eReader business, their competitors are either dying (Borders, just this past weekend, rest in peace), or re-ramping up so as to avoid the massive Nook pain. Do you own a Nook yet? Do you plan on picking one up in the near future?

Barnes & Noble NOOK Developer hooks up with Appcelerator

When you think of the NOOK or the NOOK Color, you think of reading. When we first looked at the NOOK Color, we found that not only were you able to read ebooks, you were able to work with text in many different ways, look at brilliantly colorful and digitally active magazines, and even interactive childrens books were part of the equation. Now we know this tablet to be much more versatile than that even, holding apps for games of all types as well. Today Barnes & Noble has announced a partnership with the well known development platform Appcelerator to further their dive into the much wider world of Android apps!

Nook Touch hidden browser pulled into the light

Barnes & Noble has one of the cooler eReaders on the market with the Nook Color. That little eReader has turned out to be a fully fledged Android tablet with lots to offer and a world of hacks and mods to play with for users. It seems that the Color isn't the only Nook that has some tricks hiding up its little digital sleeves. A hidden browser on the Nook Touch has been spied. The prospects of surfing the web on a black and white screen might not seem that appealing at first glance.
