Barnes & Noble continues to follow Amazon in the eBook market in terms of getting their eReader (and therefore their eBook store) as on as many devices as possible. Today they released the new Nook app for Android devices. The Android Nook app is similar to the iPhone app that lets you search, browse, purchase, download and of course read eBooks from your Android (1.6 or higher) device.
Features of the Android Nook App:
This puts the Nook on the Nook eReader, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, Blackberry, PC and Mac. Pretty comparable to the Kindle offerings.
This keeps Barnes & Noble competitive with Amazon and ahead of the Apple eBook challenges. Time will tell if Barnes & Noble’s very heavy investment in the eBook world pays off. Strong competition will continue from Amazon, Apple and soon Google.
Thanks to a recent price drop, you can get the Barnes & Noble NOOK with Wi-Fi for $149 or the NOOK 3G model for $199.
