Barnes & Noble cuts Nook tablet prices in the UK

Last month bookseller Barnes & Noble announced that its Nook tablets wouldn’t be produced as own-brand devices any more. Although it would maintain the production of its eBook readers, the next generation of Nook colour-screen tablets would be co-branded with third-party manufacturers.

It’s now cutting the UK prices of its Nook HD and HD+ tablets as part of its partnership with the London Evening Standard and its Get Reading campaign.

The 7-inch Nook HD now starts at £99 for the 8GB version, while the 9-inch Nook HD+ tablet costs from £149.

Jim Hilt, Managing Director of Barnes & Noble’s European business, said “To celebrate the free Get Reading festival and to help make digital reading more affordable across the UK, we have reduced prices on our award-winning NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ tablets for a limited time. We are committed to promoting the cause of literacy and we hope that families from all over the UK come to the Get Reading festival on 13th of July for a fantastic day of events featuring some top authors and celebrities.”

As well as being available online, Nook eBook readers and tablets are available in from UK retailers including Argos, Asda, Blackwell’s, Foyles, Currys, PC World, John Lewis and Sainsbury’s.
