Barnes & Noble unveiled their new eBook reader called “Nook“.

Some of the features and specs of the $259 device include:

  • The ability to download eBooks, magazines and newspapers over AT&T’s 3G network or via any B&N store’s free Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Read any eBook for free in a Barnes & Noble store
  • An E Ink reading screen
  • Navigation via a color touchscreen (separate from the book display from what I can see in the video, which also shows some slow page-turning and screen flashes)
  • Sync your eBooks to your iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry, Mac or PC
  • Lend eBooks to friends for up to 14 days.
  • Based on the Android Operating System
  • 2GB Internal memory/storage (up to 1,500 eBooks) with additional storage via its SD Expansion slot (for books and pictures)
  • Try before you buy with free book samples
