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

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.
