I don't know, someone had to make a big move sooner or later, With the iPad taking all the thunder from high end features such as the Alex and with the Kobo getting some news for bare bones ones, this was bound to happen by one of the big players.
I just think Barnes and Noble wanted to be the first this time instead of always playing catch up.
Now you can get a full feature, wireless downloading e-book reader for $150 as opposed to a bare bones one like the Kobo or the lower end Sony's.
And the $199 as pointed out before by someone on this thread, is a huge move to bring and even more full featured e-book reader to under $200
Let it begin.
