E-Reader Price War Breaks Out In UK as Kobo Chases Nook Down

E-Reader Price War Breaks Out In UK as Kobo Chases Nook Down | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
E-Reader Price War Breaks Out In UK as Kobo Chases Nook Down
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

WHSmith, the UK high street bookstore and stationery chain, has hit a new low in e-reader retailing—price-wise—with a deal on the Kobo Mini e-reader for just £29.99 ($47.07), down from its original £49.99 ($78.45) retail price. WHSmith, known to Brits as just Smiths, is also handing out £5.00 ($7.85) gift vouchers on till receipts to take the price down even further, to £24.99 ($39.22). This compares to a current U.S. price for the Kobo Mini of $79.99 at BestBuy, and follows a similar cut on the Nook Simple Touch last month to £29.00 which led to the device selling out at most outlets.
