Barnes & Noble has again announced a price cut for the remaining UK stock of its Nook HD tablets for the 7 and 9-inch versions, starting at £79 and £129 respectively.
The 7-inch Nook HD is now available at £79 ($123) for the 8GB version, and £99 ($154) for the 16GB offering, while the 9-inch Nook HD+ is now available at £129 ($200) for the 16GB version and £149 ($232) for the 32GB. The offer on Nook.co.uk will be sold at these prices while stock lasts.
"As families across the UK prepare for students to go back to school, Nook has made digital reading even more affordable by lowering prices on the Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets," said Jim Hilt, managing director of Barnes & Noble. "We are committed to the cause of literacy and learning in the UK and this new pricing on our highly versatile tablets will bring a world of books, apps, films, music and more to customers at an unbeatable value."
The drop in price is dramatic when compared to just a few months ago in the U.S. when the price of the 7-inch Nook HD was cut from $199 to $149 for the 8 GB version, while the 16 GB model went from $229 to $179. An even larger reduction was offered for the 9 inch Nook HD+ normally priced at $269, was reduced to $179, while the 32 GB version received a price cut from $299 to $209; but unlike this final reduction, that offer was was only for one week back in May.
Considering that the Nook HD can now also access the Google Play Store to download and run apps, this is a bargain that might be too good to miss.
