New Nook Coming Soon

May 26, 2011 at 7:13 am 5 comments

When I first looked at the original Nook last November, I wasn’t a big fan.  I thought the device sent mixed signals – navigation at the bottom was touch screen, but the reading surface was not.  It was part color, but mostly black and white.  It was heavier than the Kindle, Kobo and Sony E-reader. 

Well, now I see that the new Nook is coming on the market with a full touch screen, a mere 8 ounces in weight and a vastly improved battery life. (See B and N for more details – http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nook/index.asp?PID=34323&cds2Pid=35700#logo)  Price is very competitive at $139 for the wifi version.  It should be available for shipping just before Father’s Day – great marketing, Barnes and Noble!  I am anxious to see if this will give Amazon’s Kindle a run for the money.  Each time a new device is released, it makes the other manufacturers take note and improve their own product.  I can see e-readers just getting better and better while pricing makes them within reach of most users.

    Awesome blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!
