Barnes & Noble has introduced a lower-priced Nook Tablet in addition to decreasing the asking price for existing Nook Color units. The budget-friendly Nook Tablet now rivals the price of Amazon?s Kindle Fire at $199 while the Color has dropped to $169.

The newly-announced Nook Tablet is nearly identical to the existing model except that it features half the storage at 8GB and 50 percent less RAM at only 512MB. Storage isn?t a big deal as the device features a microSD card slot but cutting the system RAM in half will likely have a noticeable impact on the performance of the tablet.
