Introducing Barnes and Noble’s “Nook”

The Barnes and Noble eBook Reader the “Nook” was launched yesterday at a 4 p.m news conference in Manhattan. Read the play by play on The New York Times Technology page here.

At $259 it’s priced to compete with Kindle, also priced at $259. (That’s a missed opportunity… $239 would have sold a million of them and made an indelible mark on the eBook marketplace.)

I guess the name will grow on me, yah? I like the look of the Nook. Off we go, another machine for your reading pleasure.
