Keeping in mind the growing competition with Apple iPad, Kindle and several other e-readers, it seems to be a wise move to launch a lite version of existing Nook. Nook Lite will be just like Nook, but with lack of 3G connectivity. It will still retain the Wi-Fi connectvity, so you can still connect to the internet and the E-Book store to make purchased.
The rumored price of Nook Lite is $199. Another version which is in making will be Nook 2 or Project Encore. There are no specifics known about this e-reader but, it will have a proper web browser on-board and might have Android market support as well. Nook 2 will be using Freescales’ new Color E-Ink technology.
