The Digital Reader - The Best News and Info on eReaders and Tablets

Speculation about the implications of Google's tablet, expected to be unveiled next week
"If this thing really hits the market at the predicted price of $199 it’s going to play merry hell on everyone else. It ‘ll have better specs than anything else at that price point, so at a minimum we’re going to see price cut from just about everyone. Hell, I think even the sub-$100 budget tablets are going to feel the pinch. The Nexus 7 will likely cause a glut of returns, and when those tablets show up as refurbs the bottom of the market will drop.
And the more focused devices like the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire will likely both drop below $200, just to stay competitive. And there goes B&N’s market share and what little profit margin they had left."
