The Kindle Fire has been a successful device for Amazon, but Barnes & Noble may be looking to disrupt that with a new lower-cost version of the Nook Tablet.
The current 16GB Nook Tablet is priced $50 over the $199 8GB Kindle Fire. According to The Verge, Barnes & Noble is releasing a cheaper 8GB version of its Android tablet to compete more directly with the Fire.
The Verge's source indicates the new tablet could launch as early as Wednesday.
Does B&N have to undercut the Kindle Fire's price to draw consumers?
