Barnes & Noble eBook Reader with Android and Google Books

Wired reports on a new eBook reader called Nook, released by Barnes & Noble. “Nook looks a lot like Amazon’s white plastic e-book reader, only instead of the chiclet-keyboard there is a color multitouch screen, to be used as a keyboard or to browse books, cover-flow style ... The $260 Nook ... is expected to be on sale at the end of November.” Wireless capability will come from AT&T. Interestingly, Wired says that Nook “runs Google’s Android OS” and will be able “to get books from the Google Books Project.” [Via Reddit.]
