Amazon Sells the Nook



Amazon sells the Nook -- one of the lead rivals for their own Kindle. For $223. New from Barnes & Noble, the Nook is $149. What is going on here? Is it a sneaky way for Amazon to suggest to casual searchers that the Nook is a lot more expensive than the Kindle? Or is it just because it's from a third party vendor? But why does a third party vendor thing they can sell the Nook for so much?

Weird.

Looks like Amazon is selling all the ebook readers (Sony, Aluratek, Augen, Ectaco, Nook, Kindle). It does help them to havce all the choices for buyers to compare.
