Nook joins Kindle in free NYT web access for subs

Barnes & Noble joined Amazon today by giving bonus web access to New York Times subscribers in light of the newspaper's new paywall. Anyone who subscribes to the paper on a Nook device will get unfettered access to the web version. On the Nook Color, this means color images and an overall experience much more like that of a tablet.

A subscription to the Nook edition of the NYT costs $20 per month, or about as much as the iPad-plus-web plan. Readers can try it for two weeks for free and will get automatic daily downloads as long as they're connected over 3G or Wi-Fi.
