Barnes and Noble takes on Amazon


Barnes and Noble now has their own rendition of an e-book reader. What’s it called, “Nook”. Theirs comes after their recently release of free wifi for all. Their largest competition? Amazon. Sony has some out there, but doesn’t seem as popular. Though I have been to many different retailers, and the Sony works great. Of course it supports all the popular formats already out there, like for the iPhone/iTouch, Blackberry, PCs and Macs. Is it worth it? We don’t know just yet, as we don’t have a price, but I figure it will directly compete with the price of the Amazon Kindle.(Update: $249 and now taking pre-orders) You can see more over at Engadget, but here is a video of it directly from that post:
