I just learned of a new E-book Reader set to hit the market right after Thanksgiving (that is the end of November for those of you who don't know the United States Holiday schedule). It is from Barnes&Noble and is called the Nook. Judging from features and capabilities, it looks like a Kindle clone, complete with the pricing ($9.99 or less for most books), the delivery methods (3G via AT&T wireless or WiFi), and color touchscreen and E-Ink
(curious as to how that would work)
(looks like it uses the color touchscreen as a navigation screen at the bottom and the E-Ink is a separate, larger screen). It is also debuting at ~ $260 on preorder (haven't found yet if this will be the going price).
Just thought I would give those of you interested a heads-up.Barnes & Noble's new Nook E-book Reader
ADDITIONS: One thing that is interesting is the ability to "loan" any books you own for 14 days to another Nook owner or with an iPod Touch/iPhone, PC/MAC, or even a Blackberry - interesting..... Also, it provides automatic free WiFi at all B&N stores which is nice if you don't already use AT&T. It also uses Memory Cards to expand your library beyond the 2GB internal limit. YES! THE BEST PART: Native PDF reader built in!
It also has user replaceable batteries, and is uses an Android based OS (for better or worse).
Another NOTE: Just found it - Only available in the U. S. at this time. Doh!
