Just when Amazon thought they were about to have the e-book market cornered, Barnes & Noble crashes the party with their own device, Nook. Nook one ups the Kindle by adding two screens: One e-ink screen and another color touch-sensitive screen dedicated to navigation. The device also features free use of AT&T’s 3G network for downloading and purchasing books, Wi-Fi, and a book lending feature that allows you to lend titles to other nook users which they can keep for up to 14 days.
Some other Nook features include a paper-like display, a powerful battery life that can last up to ten days, and it can be used as an MP3 player, housing 26 hours of audio. The Nook is available for pre-order at barnesandnoble.com and is priced at $259.
