B & N e-book Reader –

The Nook is now available from Barnes & Noble and it is listed at $249 dollars.  A good price point with many features makes it strong competition for the Kindle.  Even in a down economy the sales should be strong out of the gate.  This is in no small part due to the timely release right before the holiday shopping season.  When e-readers come down in price to around $50 dollars they will be more widely accepted.  Spending a few hundred dollars on an e-reader for a school age children is not realistic for most family budgets.  There is also a post by Scott Anthony on the Harvard Business  blog that discusses the competition between Kindle and Nook that is worth reading.
