Barnes & Noble Introduce All-New, Android-Powered NOOK

And there you have it, another NOOK from Barnes & Noble. Officially unveiled this morning at a New York press event, the Simple Touch Reader, features a 6-inch touchscreen with E Ink Pearl technology and a a “best-in-class” battery life, with 2-month stand by time. The new NOOK weighs 35% less than the First Edition and comes in 15% thinner as well. In terms of actual specs, there’s an 800MHz processor (TI OMAP3), Wi-Fi connectivity, 2GB built-in memory, and a microSDHC slot. Like its predecessors, this model has Android (2.1) running things from inside. Look for the All-New NOOK at Barnes & Noble stores for $139 once it goes on sale June 10th.

Guess that means we’ll be reporting on this getting rooted on or around the 10th.

      One way to find out… root it!

      Also correct me if I am wrong but I think this it’s the first android device with a black and white only display
