speculation about Nook[ ]2

There will definitely be an announcement about a new ereader from B&N on May 24. That part is not speculation; it has been announced for regulatory reasons.

Here is Nate Hoffelder:

It'll be interesting to see what shows up. I suspect it'll be a lot more boring than new screen technology (a switch to Pearl seems more likely than a switch to Mirasol or something even less discussed -- I'd be surprised to see it go all touch, honestly, but you never know).

ETA: fjtorres in the comments suggests: "The WiFi only version will be closer to $100 than $150."
I find this highly plausible in the wake of the Kobo announcement.
