Barnes and Noble eReader Revealed!
Here's a first look at it over at gizmodo. It seems to correct on a few of the things I don't like about the Kindle.
It also appears to be a horrible time to put this out with Kindle with an established marketshare and everyone else waiting for Apple/Microsoft devices.
It's going to be interesting to see what kind of files are supported/DRM/etc. There is so much potential for bad decisions here!
DRM device specific formats.
Exclusive publisher deals with Amazon vs. B&N.
Ridiculous price points.
Hopefully, the people behind the device put some thought into this. Either way, tune in next week when the device is official announced.
Also, a thought inspired by the dual eInk/multitouch screen design: What if Apple released a eInk reader that you could plug your iPhone iPod Touch into?
