• Cheaper Nook's Getting Web Browsers, Email

If true, the move will mark “the first time that Nook’s entry-level readers get official access to web browsing capabilities,” according to TechCrunch. “Amazon’s competing Kindle devices have shipped with an ‘experimental’ Web browser since the Kindle 2.”
