Liliputing are reporting that Nook sales of devices and ebooks over Christmas were down compared with last year.

Unlike the author of the article I think that Barnes & Noble need to rethink their web store and ebook pricing if they want to survive in this market. I'm not sure that cutting the prices of the ereaders will be enough, even though they are great little devices.

The article mentions that the HD+ can easily be rooted to become a generic Android tablet. However the Nook Simple Touch is an Android device too and can be rooted for general use - see this Lifehacker article. So even if B&N pull out of market your old Simple Touch can be changed into a cross-platform eReader - even running the Kindle app!
