Everybody is getting into this! After Amazon come out with it’s Kindle, it looks like Barnes and Noble want in on the action. Today, they officially announced “Nook”, their own e-book reader which features a large E-Ink screen with a small color touchscreen at the bottom for navigation.
It uses AT&T’s 3G network as well as WiFi which enables the device to wirelessly send a book to a friend who also has a Nook. But the most interesting part of the device is that runs on Android.
It has 2GB of memory and it comes with a MicroSD slot.
Nook owners can connect to B&N WiFi and browse complete ebooks in-store for free — just like a real book.
The device is priced at $259 and is in direct competition with the Kindle which also costs the same. It ships at the end of November.
I’m not a big fan of e-readers but I have to say that it just got a little bit more interesting. I might check it when it comes out.
