B&N makes NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight price cut official

Barnes & Noble has made the expected NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight price cut official, rising to the challenge set by Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite. The NOOK - which, as with Amazon's new ereader, has an illuminated display for nighttime reading - has been cut to a Kindle-matching $119, down twenty bucks from its launch price. However, B&N claims, the bargain doesn't end there.

Nook GlowLight gets a price cut as Paperwhite launch approaches

Amazon's impressive new Kindle Paperwhite is set to launch in just a couple of days, but Barnes and Noble has decided that its going to put up a fight. Both Target and Walmart are showing that the price of the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight has been cut just ahead of the Paperwhite's launch. The new price of the Nook GlowLight? $119, the same price that Amazon has given the basic Paperwhite model.

NOOK HD and the B&N ecosystem gamble

NOOK HD and the B&N ecosystem gamble

The tablet market is heating up, and for once it's not Apple, or Google, or Samsung doing the shaking, but booksellers Barnes & Noble. The new NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ may carry the same name as B&N tablets of before, but they're worlds apart in hardware and clarity of software ecosystem. Not content to chase Amazon and Apple on price alone, there's an apparently legitimate attempt on B&N's part to tune each model to the audience most likely to be interested in it, rather than chasing some imaginatively aspirational but likely non-existent "perfect" consumer.

Nook Video aims to jab Netflix and Amazon all at once

Nook Video aims to jab Netflix and Amazon all at once

If you were looking for another reason to pick up a new Nook tablet - revealed earlier today - you'll find it in Barnes & Noble's announcement of Nook Video, a streaming service they're set to release to fight Netflix and Amazon's efforts in the video universe. While Amazon does indeed have a tablet competitor for the Nook line in their own Kindle Fire HD (and the rest), they don't have the same key-word that Barnes & Noble is coming up with: UltraViolet - and the same, basically, goes for Netflix. With HBO, Sony Pictures, Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros, and Starz already signing up for the Nook Video team, there very well could be some clout to the book company's claims.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: July 30, 2012

This morning it's a torrent of magical Apple news, and it's not going to let up all day long, I guarantee it. We're just about this close to a new iPhone and perhaps a new iPad mini as well, and what you're going to find is no less than a billion stories on both coming up in the pipe. Start your journey with the Apple design chief himself talking about how they don't care about money. Check out the iPad mini tipline and factoids on how it might ship in November. Then if you're not in for the long haul with Apple, you might want to check out the relatively bad news coming from HTC on how they're pulling out. Microsoft is also staying vocal with information about Perceptive Pixel and how they're going big with giant screens.

Barnes & Noble adds maps to Nook with skobbler

Barnes & Noble adds maps to Nook with skobbler

Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablets are limited in their mapping abilities, currently relying on Google's web interface to access any kind of maps. That’s set to change today, as the company has announced a partnership with skobbler that will see the Nook tablets gain the ability to natively search and view maps. It’s an interesting move from Barnes & Noble to avoid using Google’s services, although we imagine the advent of the Nexus 7 and its low price point has made the company’s options clearer.
