Barnes & Noble may have beat Spring Design to the punch by releasing the first Android-powered e-reader, but Alex might still claim to be the best when it launches on February 22. It features a larger 3.5-inch color touch screen, and full access to the Android operating system, including e-mail, calendars, and Web browsing. Spring Design hasn’t yet settled on a wireless partner to support the Alex on launch, but it should have one by the time it debuts for $399.
