IT'S TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26TH, I'M NATALI DEL CONTE AND IT'S TIME TO GET LOADED. [*] SONY HAS DROPPED THE PRICE OF THE PSP-GO FROM $249 TO $199. THIS PRICE DROP WILL HAPPEN IN JAPAN AND THE U.S. ALTHOUGH THE PSP GO WAS NEVER A BIG GAME CHANGER IN PORTABLE GAMING SO I'M NOT SURE IT WILL MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE BUT IT IS JUST ABOUT HOLIDAY TIME SO THE CHEAPER PRICE MAY MOVE SOME MODELS. [*] ANOTHER DEVICE GETTING A PRICE DROP: THE KOBO E-READER. THE DEVICE WHICH ACCESSES BORDERS ELECTRONIC BOOKS WENT FROM $129 TO $99 THIS WEEK. BORDERS SAYS THAT THIS IS FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON ONLY ALTHOUGH I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF THE PRICE WENT BACK UP CONSIDERING THAT IT IS HARDLY SELLING LIKE GANGBUSTERS.

IT COMES IN A 2 GIG AND 5 GIG VERSION WITH MESSAGING PLANS RANGING FROM $30 PER MONTH TO $60 PER MONTH. LAST WEEK WE LEARNED THAT VERIZON WOULD CARRY THE GALAXY TAB AS WELL BUT THEY WILL NOT REQUIRE A CONTRACT. [*] THIS MAY BE A SIGN THAT 3D TV HAS JUMPED THE SHARK.
