Where's the Barnes & Noble eReader App for Android?

android_bn_ereader_appOne of the hottest topics in Android this week has been the new Barnes & Noble “nook” ebook Reader.  Among the first Android-based devices of its kind, the device is sure to be a hot seller this holiday season.  After all, it has plenty of features that the Amazon Kindle 2 does not.

Take for instance the LendMe technology which allows users to share their digital books with others.   Not only can you share your book for 2 weeks with fellow nook owners, but there is also support for , iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, PC, and Mac OS.  So where’s Android?  After all, the nook is based off Android.

Fret not.  It appears that plans are under way for Android and Windows Mobile editions of the eReader software.  If you browse through the nook Fact Sheet (PDF), you’ll see on page 3 that Android is mentioned with the other devices.  This leads us to believe that an app is already in progress.
