As expected, Barnes & Noble's Android-based Nook Color has fallen $50 to $199.99 ahead of the presumed announcement of a successor next week.
According to a document obtained by Android Central, the Nook Color won't only be dropping to $199 but it will also be getting Hulu Plus, Rhapsody, MOG, and Grooveshark apps via a 1.4 software update.
We'd been wondering how Barnes & Noble would respond to the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire at its Nook event next week, and it looks like we have an answer: the $249 Nook Tablet.
