In the spirit of
competition the season, B&N is doing a $25 dollar gift card with the purchase of a Nook Color!
This brings the Nook Color to the same price as the Fire, plus a $25 gift card and it is a good deal more open-ended. You could, for instance, run the Kindle app on the Nook, which I am pretty sure is not possible the other way around!
B&N seems serious about the competition on this but will the Nook Tablet at a $249 price point stand the test of time? I suspect that they will have to drop it to $199 but I would personally prefer to pay a couple of more bucks to B&N to have a more open tablet architecture. They may just be trying to clear their inventory of Nook Color units before they lower the price.
Of course, I am STILL annoyed that they have opted for no bluetooth in either tablet! Why limit the expansion possibilities that way?

Of course, according to Engadget, all that open endedness is going away…
