Barnes & Noble offers new $139 e-reader

Touch2 It's not fancy. But it's cheaper. And sometimes that makes the difference.

Barnes & Noble has announced a new, scaled-down version of its Nook called the Nook Simple Touch, which comes with no apps, no swanky colors, only a few buttons - and a competitive cost of $139. The device features a 6-inch touchscreen and weighs 7.5 ounces, one ounce less than the Kindle (size matters). No 3G, Wi-Fi only; batterly life is allegedly up to two months on just one charge.
