Rumor: Barnes & Noble Taking on Kindle with Help from Android

16

barnes_and_noble_logoThe big, hot rumor of the day is that bookselling behemoth Barnes & Noble is on the verge of introducing their own ereader device powered by Android. The basis of this story comes from a B&N employee who claims to have developed apps for the device. 

Gizmodo is reporting that the retailer is going to drop this on us as early as next month.   The unnamed device is expected to have a six-inch screen, a virtual keyboard, and allow for downloadable content (apps!) over wireless connection.

  1. This could be something I'd buy, still want to know more- who doesn't. Anyhow, Android needs a solid reader anyway. I'm waiting to see what else hits before buying anything…. it might be best to wait until after the Holiday season. 🙂
