The RT model is most likely coming with bundled Nook app too; they paid a nice chunk of change in return for a slice of the ebooks sold through it so they might as well use it.
I know there are two models, but even the cheapest one is priced way above the average consumers liking. Comparably priced 32GB and 64GB means a price tag to match the iPad. In other words, $600 and $700 for WiFi; and $700+ and $800+ for cellular models.
