A WiFi-only NOOK (model number BNRV100) has been confirmed and priced at US$149 by Barnes & Noble. For more detailed info check out the complete press release. The price of the 3G-capable NOOK has dropped $60 to $199. There is also an updated firmware (version 1.4) that allows free connections to AT&T’s wireless hotspots. The WiFi-only Nook is available as of today. I look forward to even more affordable e-book readers in the near future.
