NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:

Nook Starts the Price War in E-Readers (BRAD STONE, 6/20/10, NY Times)

Today, Barnes & Noble started this round of price-cutting by dropping the price of the original Nook, with Wi-Fi and 3G wireless connectivity, to $199 from $259. It also introduced a new, Wi-Fi-only Nook at $149. That compares to the Amazon Kindle at $259 and the Sony Reader, whose least expensive version, the Pocket Edition, costs $169 and has no wireless connectivity at all.
